One of the take-aways from the 2008-11-24 meetup was that we will begin to start building some real code around a small set of verbs and object types.  This is by no means intended to be an exhaustive list of verbs, it is simply the verbs we have currently defined and chosen to implement.  It is expected that we will extend and modify this list as we work to better define the set of common activity verbs.  Brainstorming about potential verbs should be added to activity-streams-brainstorming or activity-streams-examples

All verbs should be URIs.  It is expected that a fixed list of common verbs will be created and published by the activity stream community.  Beyond this list, anyone will be able to create their own verbs by simply defining them within a URI namespace they control. 

Common Verbs

The formal structure of the common verbs is http://activitystrea.ms/schema/1.0/verbname/. Ideally, the verb name should be one word. If multiple words are necessary, they should be separated by a hyphen (-). Verb names should be in the present tense.

this is the default verb, and shall be implied in the absence of a more specific verb.
