[http://www.semanticwave.com/blog/archives/000282.jsp SixApart: Opening the Social Graph]:
:We think that the best way for you to manage your network is to stop thinking about all of the little pieces and to start focusing on the big picture: you and the people who matter to you. We think relationships mean more than email addresses or which service you’re signed on to at the moment. So we’ve created an experimental demo based upon open technologies OpenID, the Microformats hCard and XFN, and FOAF that allow you to see your entire network of relationships in one place – across services, across platforms, across the entire Web.
How wonderful! I’ve been wanting this for ages! Even started the [http://wiki.aardrock.com/Campfire Campfire] experiment a couple of years ago to address exactly this issue. I fully endorse opening the social graph.
