Has it occured to anyone that the entries in Advogato can easily
be dumped into FOAF?

Advogato FOAF

diary entries Document/publications

Add a http:// property
and I think that pretty much covers it.

Has anyone already done this? Doesn't seem hugely difficult: run
the pages through HTML Tidy + Regular Fragmentations + some XSLT and
you're probably 90% there.

A project for another day I think. Reworking FOAF-a-matic at the moment.



p.s. You could do the same with blogrolls I think. Doubtless Radio or
similar tools could be customised to dump out FOAF descriptions of their
authors and their reading lists, etc.
