T-SIOC, Object-centered Sociality

AI3 Note: This is the first experiment of directly publishing a blog post from another blog based solely on its RDF. The output came from the new WP SIOC plugin from the inestimable CaptSolo. I also created a new title and then edited the original title slightly as the sub-title. The direct stuff comes next. Thx, Capt!

This post was created by the WordPress SIOC Import plugin based on this SIOC RDF data describing a post located at

I've been reading Jyri Zengestrom's post about object-centred sociality again and I think this illustrates one usage of our SIOC Types module (T-SIOC) very nicely. I've extended my previous picture showing a person being linked across communities to this idea of people (via their user profiles) being connected by the content they create together, co-annotate, or for which they use similar annotations. Bob and Carol are connected via bookmarked URLs that they both have annotated and also through events that they are both attending, and Alice and Bob are using similar tags and are subscribed to the same blogs.
