I wonder if anyone has done anything with converting LinkedIn contacts to 
foaf.  I know that they publish vcard data of one's connections but much of 
the vcard data can be related to equivalent foaf properties.  For the rest, 
there would just be a need to represent the vcard or hcard microformat 
information along with the foaf data.
