Re: RDF vocabulary for describing news?

Hi all

Just a quick comment on that.
At ISWC, Evan from NYT (cc-ed) announced they're working on a news-related vocabulary. 
That could probably suit your needs.

You could find some NewsML mailing list to see if anyone there had thought about an RDF ontology, and if not you could use the namespaces and terms in their XML schema as the basis for one.

RSS has become too vague for this purpose. I found http://ebiquity.umbc.edu/ontology/news.owl#News but according to Sindice, it's not used anywhere except on  ebiquity.umbc.edu.
