Norm Walsh emailed me to note that the “refer a friend” link from the FOAF-a-Matic is broken. D’oh!
It’s pretty simple, so thought I’d jot it down here.
name— your full name
seealso— location of your FOAF file
Obviously the values of all of these need to be URL encoded. Here’s an example:
If you then give someone a link to the FOAF-a-Matic with those parameters, it’ll fill you in as their first friend and their FOAF file will automatically have a link to yours. This is a quick way to get your friends into the FOAF network without them having to hand edit their FOAF too much.
btw, planning to revive Mark 2 shortly once the next version of the Jena API settles down.
