opening the social graph
David Recordon, who's back (in force) at Six Apart blogs about one of the things we're contributing to at Six Apart: opening the social graph. It's long but worth the read (and the time for the screencasts); David does a great job of putting all of the work that's happening around the web on OpenID, hCard, XFN and FOAF into a user-centered context. The goal is making it easy to discover and connect with people across networks. "An open social graph is just as important as an open identity."
