[rdfweb-dev] markup for describing chat channels (IRC, Jabber, ...)

Chatting with stpeter in #foaf a couple days ago, then lilo in #rdfig
just now, I have just made a quick example page in the wiki sketching a
way of using RDF, FOAF etc to describe chat channels / rooms.

See http://rdfweb.org/topic/FoafChannelMarkupExample

Most of it isn't to do with the chat protocol, so should generalise
beyond IRC, Jabber or other protocol. Idea was to mostly just associate
the channel with a web homepage for the community, then use more
mainstream markup to characterise the topic of that page.

for stpeter.

The example I gave is just a quick hack, but as this topic keeps coming
up I thought I'd make a start at sketching some conventions...
