Dan Connolly:

| Likewise, for social networking purposes, the FOAF community
| stipulates that foaf:Person is that class of things with
| roughly 6 billion bipeds in it, largely oblivious
| to the DOLCE and EPISTLE refinements of this way of thinking.

Even worse, the definition of foaf:Person includes the phrase 'We don't nitpic
about whether they're alive, dead, real, or imaginary.' So foaf:Person firmly
includes Odysseus, Batman and Aragorn along with Dan Connolly, Pat Hayes and
others. Which raises the interesting question what foaf:Person is *about* :-)
