Re: [foaf-dev] EON - event of note

Not at all! The EventMedia bubble in the LOD cloud used to contain many 
upcoming events (which will be past events at some point in the future ;-)

I agree that OWL Time should be revised at some point, but hey, we just 
have one blank node !
(made up) Example of a description of a past Radiohead concert in LA:

   a lode:Event;
   dc:title "Radiohead: Haiti Relief Concert";
   lode:involvedAgent <>;
   lode:atPlace <>;
     [ wgs84:lat "34.101624"^^xsd:string;
       wgs84:long "-118.32331"^^xsd:string
     [ time:inXSDDateTime "2010-01-24T20:00:00"^^xsd:dateTime ];
   owl:sameAs <>;
   dc:publisher <>.

There are extensions for this, either using the patterns from the F 
event model or with direct properties. It would be better to start from 
this rather than re-inventing what already exists.
Best regards.
