Hi Uldis,

At first glance this looks *REALLY* cool!  I've Cc'd the LLUP/Blip Messaging development list (see: for more info) as it seems that while the focus is different, there are some similar technologies that are within the same scope that we could learn/extend/benefit from.

Thanks for the info!

This combination of the two applications (Semantic Radar [1] and SemWeb Ping Service [2]) may be of particular interest to the DOAP community - allowing to discover DOAP resources on the Web.

Semantic Radar - a Firefox extension that detects DOAP, FOAF and SIOC autodiscovery links and can also ping the SemWeb Ping Service.

SemWeb Ping Service - a web service that collects pings about newly discovered or updated Semantic Web resources. One of the ping sources is the Semantic Radar extension - thus you are collaboratively charting the Semantic Web in the background as you are browsing the web. Information collected by the ping service is available to whoever needs it. It has helped to find many DOAP documents - so far the ping service lists 190 DOAP profiles including Opera widgets, OpenLink Virtuoso and Apache projects.

You may find developers of these applications online on #sioc (

All feedback is welcome. :)
