Just Added FOAF Support to Your LQ Profile

We all know that one of the benefits of OSS is the ability to avoid vendor lockin. One thing that often gets overlooked, however, is data lockin. As “Web Services” get more and more popular, the importance of data lockin will become more clear. One project that aims to help in this regard is FOAF, or Friend of a Friend. Based on RDF, FOAF allows the expression of personal information and relationships in a standardized way. I'm happy to report that as of today, you can get FOAF info for any LQ member via their member profile page. I'm still polishing things up a bit, but everything is working as of now. We probably should have supported this a while ago, but better let than never…
