Is it reasonable to create an eg:Person subclass of vCard:VCard?—@JeniT
@JeniT, I find it easiest to think in terms of sets, baby Venn diagram stuff - rdfs:subClassOf means a little circle inside a bigger circle—@danja
@danja I'm asking about the semantics. vCard:VCard has properties like name, address and workEmail; that implies one can be a Person to me.—@JeniT
@JeniT In the case of vCard, those are properties of a *card* not a person.—@ndw

@plasticbagUK When pols reach a certain stature, their parties have their "straight answer to a question" gland removed surgically—@ndw

Terris a year ago: If the Republicans think they will lose, they'll burn Wall Street just like Russia did to Hitler & be back 4 years later—@terrisCA
@terrisca That's an interesting observation re: Wall Street—@ndw
