sociable plinking

at almost exactly the same time i'm reading om malik's plea for a a dencentralized friendster-style application , i noticed something called plink in my referer logs, which seems to be indexing foaf files:

"Welcome to PLINK, a new way to find friends, and friends of friends!

PLINK gets all its user data from 'FOAF' (Friend-of-a-Friend) files which anyone can add to their web site."

plink seems fairly rudimentary at this point and i'm sure we'll see much more of this type of thing in the coming months, since in the comments to om's post, it looks like marc canter is working on a foaf-based project call peopleaggregator . i'd also find it hard to believe that dave isn't working on something similar for technorati . perhaps foaf isn't destined to die on the vine afterall.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
