Data on Discussions and Social Networks from the Last 10 Years

Ten years of discussions from the Irish forum site boards.ie are available in SIOC format; more details are available here. The FOAF files link to each other, describing a social network based on the users' buddy lists.

The data in total (over 10 years) is around 9 million documents and takes about 50 gigabytes of disk space - it's all in RDF/XML file format. This resource is supported by Science Foundation Ireland under grant number SFI/02/CE1/I131 at the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI), National University of Ireland, Galway.
