I was going to upload the zip of the rdf that i used to create the
ntriples, but i accidently deleted the zip file, when i deleted the rdf

It is very possible, i just used wget to suck the files out, when i get
back home, i'll post the shell scripts.

But you can also use cwm and rdfdump to convert the ntriples back into

yes, from the ntriples, 
i just did a grep cut and sort on the ntriples file.

Well the idea would be to create a set of foafs for the rdfig foaf bot,
it would know about contributors who want to me known about, let's say,
if they submit thier foaf to the bot :
that would be a new command : submit my foaf
then the bot would know what aliases have gotten submissions from what
person. It could then, if you dont have a foaf, but are posting a uri,
tell you : "please submit a foaf so that i know who you are".

then after multiple nicks are associated to the bot, it would then be
able to replace the nick with a real foaf uri in the chatlogs, or at
least a md5 digest of the persons foaf so that spammers cannot get at

After that is handled, we should be able to do two things :
get uris based on people and have a trust metric on them.

Also it would be great to setup an ontology for the rdfchat that allows
for a high level classification of uris in the system :

like : this is a rdf instance, this is a daml ontology, this is a
postscript file. Basically like an annotation system for the links.

That would allow for a quicker finding of rdf resources and thier
better processing.

A x-ref of them to the dmoz, would be good.

and maybe some type of link checker : like these are all the files
referenced in the rdfchat, this is thier google cache. The thing is
that google will automatically find out for you what type of file it
is, and also try and decode it. If we make 

Speaking about that, now i can access the logs from work,
via google!

here is a text file :

here is a html file :

Here is the rdf file :

Oh, no! Google does not do RDF!
I will write to them, asking them to index the rdf files...
google labs.... cool

But here is a blog, it looks similar, in fact, the chump says that it
