Engines, WebAssistant, NetModular or Technorati all wanna play along.
And there are even right-wing/VC oriented systems like Always-On which
want to be part of some sort of federated social network of social
So we have a huge opportunity staring us in the face - all based upon
FOAF. I myself wanna establish a 'digital lifestyle aggregator' kind of
environment, where I can support my various "digital presences" on the
