Blog Housekeeping: SKOS Taxonomy

Volume 8, Issue 88; 01 Jun 2005; last modified 08 Oct 2010

I've done a bit more housekeeping. None of this should be significant to the casual visitor, nor even visible for the most part.

I've done a bit more housekeeping. Most of it shouldn'tIn fact, the threading stuff is a little broken right now, so some of the changes are visible, but that'll get fixed “real soon now”. be visible to the casual visitor, though those who scrape the RDF from this site may notice that a few things have changed.

  1. The “taxonomy” is now expressed using SKOS. Also, I've reorganized some parts of the taxonomy, threads, and tag data to make it all more uniform, mostly driven by the taxonomy.

  2. The “when” data is now stored in RDF using RDF/iCal.

  3. The “who” data is once again being generated from my “personal information appliance” (now my Sidekick). It's not perfect yet and some of the FOAF data is a little irregular. That will improve over time.

  4. Comment links and advertising show up on a few of the older pages where they didn't used to appear.


fun with circles-and-arrows: including Makefile, skosgram.n3 stylesheet, and ndwtax in .png, .svg, .ps etc.

Hi Norman,

that would be great if you could publish the method to organize your own private taxonomy with SKOS. (If you have time ;) )
