Subject Re: Google Summer of Code ideas for Roller?
Date Thu, 13 Mar 2008 22:48:55 GMT
Good idea Ian.

I would add to this the following reading from the distributed  
information group at MIT, where they show how open social networks  
using foaf and openid can work together to create a distributed and  
evolving web of trust

the idea is to crawl foaf files from certain people (those that have  
an account perhaps), extract the people who have openid, and give them  
priviledged access.

read the article for a good implementation idea. I think doing this  
should be both easy and a good way to get a little practical semantic  
web experience. I'd be happy to help out.
