Hi List,

I've been working with Yves Raimond to create a live Myspace to RDF service.  Thought it might be of interest to this list.  It can be found on dbtune here:

http://dbtune.org/myspace/

The service can be used two ways - with a myspace URL or a myspace uid.  For example, J-Dilla's myspace page (http://myspace.com/jdilla) can be RDFized like this...

http://dbtune.org/myspace/jdilla

We just drop the 'myspace.com' and replace w/ "dbtune.org/myspace"  Alternatively, you can use the myspace-assigned UID directly

http://dbtune.org/myspace/uid/38115508

The resulting RDF uses MO and FOAF ontologies.  Note that only the "top friends" are included in this representation.  Also, a special bonus, for artist accounts availableAs links are included pointing to the *streaming audio cache* for each track!!!

Also note this is a pre-oSocial endeavor, so we're scrapping and it's a bit slow but usable (i hope).  New version using oSocial coming soon.  Enjoy.
