Funny you should mention phone numbers.
We recently had to decide how to deal with home, work, mobile (cell) phone
numbers in FOAF so we've added a foaf:type which I'm not sure able?
<foaf:phone foaf:type="mobile">tel:070 9211 9075</foaf:phone>
<foaf:phone foaf:type="business">tel:014 8368 5555</foaf:phone>
What do you guys think?
Also, there's a standard set of properties to an Outlook contact record which
we could also add. Should we extend the FOAF namespace or create a Outlook or
If you would like to see the FOAF we generate please download the Outlook2FOAF
beta via here:
All feedback is greatly appreciated.
PS. Freddie knows that the largest FOAF file today was created by Thomas Power
using the Outlook2FOAF tool. 12k+ knows/Person things in a single file!
