OpenSocial in RDF

I've created an RDF converter for the OpenSocial field definitions.
I'm currently working on a new release of Knowee. This is another (long-promised) item on my ToDo list before I can finally concentrate on paggr (although it took too long already and hopefully won't break my neck. All the planned paid projects for bootstrapping paggr didn't happen, due to frozen budgets and politics. I hope the situation here improves soon.)

So, while I was trawling the vocabulary market, trying to gather terms for the stuff that Knowee works with (people, their profiles, contacts, accounts, and activities), I remembered OpenSocial, the effort to standardize basic interactions between social networking sites. I can use a good amount of FOAF, but OpenSocial has very handy things such as a generic "tags" field and a clean vCard mapping. And it's a super-set of Portable Contacts, too.

Today, I wrote a converter that extracts the field definitions from the JavaScript specification files, together with their labels, comments, domains, and value types. (A little too late, I found out that Dan Brickley had already done part of this a couple of months ago, could have saved me some work, d'oh.)

I've just added the osoc spec to I hope it might be of use to others as well. Funnily, the "relationship" term was not part of any of the source files, maybe I still have to invent a property (a foaf:knows equivalent that also works with organizations).
