FOAF Activity

Lots of interesting FOAF activity lately, seemingly spurred on by the ETech presentations. Danny has already blogged pointers to the Guardian coverage and the videos of the presentations.
Elsewhere I see that flickr now supports FOAF through it’s profile service. I’ve not looked at the site since I signed up and played a few days ago, probably time to dive back in again. There are some interesting services springing up.
The Trust and Reputation in Web-based Social Networks project deserves your support. Part of Jennifer Golbeck’s dissertation the intention is to capture trust metrics from people’s FOAF files to generate some views of the trust relationships. There are examples of how to hand-code the trust statements in your FOAF description. Or you could use the Trust-O-Matic.
While you’re editing your FOAF description you might want to read through Christopher Allen’s Hand-crafting my FOAF article which includes some good pointers on generating your FOAF description. It’s worth dusting off your self-description to make sure you’re using the latest terms, do it now to avoid being pestered!
