QuoteIssue

current status: open

This is a FoafVocab issue, documented as such by linking it from the IssueTracker page.

The recent Pew Internet survey on instant messaging noted that the most popular form of content added to IM profile pages (think the ICQ website) is "funny quotes or other sayings" that the person identifies with in some way. The numbers: 42% of profile creators included quotes, whereas only 18% included links to websites of interest (think foaf:interest). So it seems that it would be good for FOAF to include a foaf:quote property of some kind.

When an issue is resolved or its status w.r.t. the FOAF spec changes, that changed state of affairs should be documented somewhere less transient than the wiki. See IssueTracker for more notes on issue management conventions.
