Hello everybody,

today I like to announce a first draft of the Recommendation 
Ontology[1,2,3]. As far as I get an overview, there exists currently no 
ontology, which address this purpose as I intended it.
With this ontology it should be possible to associate a recommendation 
to someone or something. The recommendation itself includes the 
recommendation objects and a relation to the recommender, e.g. an 
is:InfoService instance. The association and/or similarity statements, 
which are describing the reasons for a recommendation, can be described 
on the basis of the sim:Association[4] concept, which can be related to 
a sim:association concept by the property ao:included_association[5].
The aim of the Recommendation Ontology is to serve recommendations from 
different information services to users (or something) by having also 
the opportunity to describe the reasons for the recommendation and 
hence, enable transparency. A use case example, which follows the idea 
of transparency recommendations is dbrec.net[6].

Please let me know, what do you think about this modelling. Comments, 
critics and suggestions are very welcome.
