that jumps users to your form page when they presss it. You could
(mumble mumble) do something to catalogue folks home page or photos they
appear in based on that. I guess this'd be a fairly different form to
your current one.

Basic idea is that they're just more documents in the Web. So some
writeable www space. Should note that geocites etc might rewrite the
markup and break the xml wellformedness.
The best (though not simplest) discovery mechanism is hypertext. One RDF
FOAF file can have an rdfs:seeAlso pointer to another.
Other tricks: Libby has a www form that adds an RDF url to her
'scutterplan' document (ie. list of starting points).
I was wondering about a Wiki page where folk could just scribble URLs,
or a mailing list. Lots of things we _could_ do... would be nice to do
some of them soon.
The other idea is LINK REL from homepages, though exact details would
need nailing down (mimetype etc)
> * Has anyone thought of adding familial relationships (wife, husband, son,
Yes. Never got around to it. I use foaf:sister and foaf:wife somewhere,
but never added to schema. We should add a whole bunch. How far to go
though, foaf:secondCousin ?
> * Property suggestions: 'wishlist' (e.g. Amazon wishlist) and 'readinglist'
2nd'd (both), though we might want to define Document subclasses for
both these too, so that the amazon'yness of the wishlist could be made
explicit, or the subject/theme/topic of the reading list.
