Friend of a Friend

Aka FOAF. FOAF is a way (as in vocabulary) to express personal information about someone and relationships between persons and groups, all in XML. Don’t know how I missed more attention to this for so long. Just crossed around it again when reading about Yadis, Brad’s newest cool project, to find out that it couldn’t be more on time (at least for me to take a look at it) just when everybody talks about social engineering and cross referenced online communities. Just for starters I’m adding a X-FOAF header in my Mac Mail.app, creating a Autodiscovery meta link for this Blog’s header (view this page source), and creating my personal FOAF file using FOAF-A-Matic. More on this later – I’m hooked :)
