I’m back to Learning SPARQL, after setting it (figuratively) aside when Safari lost my bookmark. Now I’m back to it in paper. After spending yesterday failing to set up a SPARQL endpoint with RDF::Endpoint, I just decided to mess around with queries embedded in Perl (in the script/Playground.pl workspace).

PREFIX sioc: <http://rdfs.org/sioc/ns#> 
PREFIX stream: <http://www.w3.org/ns/activitystreams#>
PREFIX atom: <http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom/>

 ?inbox sioc:has_owner <http://habrok:6809/users/silver> .
 ?inbox stream:item ?item . 
 ?item stream:object ?remote .
 ?remote atom:id ?url .
 ?remote atom:title ?title .
 ?remote atom:published ?published .
 ?remote atom:content ?content .

It’s a pretty boring query, but it will pull up all of the information in my Inbox. Or anything else that has_owner me, so it’s far from a finished product. Next step will be setting rules so that rss:titles are the same as atom:titles and so forth, and so that the author info from either the entry or the parent feed gets pulled in.

Comment? Email it to me. (I'll assume I can publish it unless you say otherwise)
