Generating FOAF From Flickr

Thanks to my horrible PHP skills, I can now generate some FOAF from Flickr profiles.

For example, here is some (very basic) FOAF for a Flickr Member.

Ironically, Flickr's Service API can retrieve a user's information, but almost nothing is in there. Plus, you can't tell what groups a user is a member of, or what contacts a user has.

My end goal for this is to generate FOAF with name, nick, gender, location, groups, contacts, and photos. Then we'll start on RDF for the photos themselves, including the tags a photo has.

Then we'll scutter it all, and slap some ontologies down. Should be interesting!

Question is, how good are my screen scraping regex skills?
