The latter half of this week has been taken up with hacking on my IRC/Semantic Web bots.
The Daily Chump is nearing a new release, incorporating a lot of features designed to adjust how chatty the bot is, requested by external users of the bot.
FOAFbot now understands how to read FOAF files that have been encrypted for it, allowing sensitive information to enter the FOAF web and only be readable by certain parties. It also now merges on SHA1 sums of mailboxes, meaning that people don't have to expose their email address in a plain text file, but can put it in an encrypted file.
I expect to release new versions of both these pieces of software at some point this weekend.
