Directory link formats

This is a page for documenting ways people link to directories and build directories in a distributed manner.

  • directory urls?
    • Lot of directories do 'listed in foo' links (often with a badge), but don't link to the specific part of the directory they're listed in.
  • how do people indicate 'a directory for a page'?
    • Hardly anyone links to the specific page, many link to the root of the directory. For example, many blogshares listed blogs use blogshares.gif to signify that they're listed, but not where in the directory they're listed.
  • SKOS
    • "SKOS is an area of work developing specifications and standards to support the use of knowledge organisation systems (KOS) such as thesauri, classification schemes, subject heading lists, taxonomies, terminologies, glossaries and other types of controlled vocabulary within the framework of the semantic web."
    • According to DannyAyers, SKOS could be useful prior art. User:RyanKing is still reading the specs.
