Hi everyone

At Poderopedia, a project by Poderomedia
Foundation<http://www.knightfoundation.org/grants/20110153/> that
aims to promote greater transparency in Chile by mapping and visualizing
the relationships among the country's elite, we are working on a new
ontology. The goal is to *identify and express relations of power and
influence of people and organizations*. While we're focused on Chilean
political, civic and business leaders, this vocabulary can be used in other
contexts with minor or no modifications at all.

The PoderVocabulary is open and available for everybody to use. You can
obtain a copy, comment, and raise questions here on
: https://github.com/poderopedia/PoderVocabulary

We would appreciate good questions, comments and criticism, so we can
improve this vocabulary to make it useful for other people in the world, as
it's been useful for us.

We can also always use a friendly hand. So if you want to help us in any
way, you want more information, you are interested in getting involved with
Poderopedia, or you want to talk about launching a chapter of Poderopedia
in your country or simply want to say hi, please contact us at info (at)

Thanks for your time!
