  • nitya Nitya Narasimhan, Researcher. Engineer. Innovator at Greater New York Area Thanks Chris -- that makes perfect sense actually!! So it would be possible to propose a new object-type called 'query' (and possibly a corresponding 'response')? Given a multitude of community Q&A sites, I think this could be a neat way to support distributed query creation (vs. current centralized or destination-based query creation).

    Regardless, this is a lot of fodder for thought. Will check out the mailing list for more.

  • factoryjoe Chris Messina, UX Designer at Google Good question, Nitya.

    I think it depends — generally speaking, any time something new is created in a digital environment, you can use the 'post' verb — and change the object type... i.e. 'Chris posted a new question'.

    If you have a specific use case where a more specific verb is useful, you could specify multiple verbs ('post' and 'ask') but I haven't seen too many people doing that just yet.

    In general, it's desirable to reuse from the existing schema to promote interoperability.

  • nitya Nitya Narasimhan, Researcher. Engineer. Innovator at Greater New York Area Very cool concept and a very self-explanatory presentation of the same. The simplicity of defining an activity (actor verb object-type target) is compelling.

    Would be interested in understanding the process for recommending new verbs for adoption - in particular, does something like 'ask' constitute a valid verb (indicative of the fact that the target object is a query) or would it be overloading the equivalent of 'post' (indicative of the fact that the target object is a note or comment).
