Friend Of A Friend RDF repository

Reminds me of my Digital Identity directory idea...


Other than the who-knows-who part, how much extra value is here, beyond posting a VCard? - roughly 30 people have entries; ID=email address, maybe? (Actually, no, a user can associate himself with multiple addresses, but the idea is that an address is only used by a single user - how handle dirty/fraudulent data?)

RDFWeb: FOAF: |the 'friend of a friend' project XML Watch: Finding friends with XML and RDF plus follow-up discussing provenance, Web Of Trust issues, etc.

FOAFBot: IRC Community Support Agent

requires (?) publishing of data in XML/RDF format.

namespace (which can be extended)

FOAF-a-matic JavaScript app to help you make a FOAF file about yourself.

Proposal and reference links re use of names in FOAF - (interesting internationalization issues)

You can get your FOAF file spidered by adding a link to this page.

Is this the data actually used for Aaron Swartz's record in the directory? I don't think so...

See little bit of investigation on the Object Browser page.

To control how you share data via FOAF, you probably want some sort of P2P app that hold all the data, starts out exposing a certain amount of data to anyone, then responding to requests for more data selectively, through both automated rules (e.g. SpamBayes, Social Networking) and real-time prompting of the data owner. OSAF/Jabber?
