[foaf-protocols] small window of foaf opportunity in realty

I want to reference foaf cards sitting on user's websites, somehow, and bring them into realty. The only thing I can think of doing (which doesnt require removing the website's current membership system, and replacing with with foaf) is to let a particular webby document we produce (an RSS stream) point "suitably" to a foaf card, so one might use webby tools to learn more about the "author" associated with that stream. If this doesnt make any sense, I can give up. Im hoping that RSS and foaf has some conventions, so I describe authors of items by leveraging the foaf infrastructure. Thus, the web can 'augment" the realty-managed membership records about folk, with user-controlled content from the web itself. Remember, Im not trying to redesign the web, adopt a new paradigm, or fight the holy war against X.509 and CAs and replace them with the PGP trust model. Im trying to apply a foaf card, assuming some 1000 persons are running a server much like openlink offers, exporting foaf/webid URIs. Date: Sat, 29 Oct 2011 13:16:02 -0400

Given an object with the following characteristics (properties or
attribute=value pairs coalescing around object id in graph pictorial form):
1. AttributeExtensions -- Gets (resolves to) the element extensions for

4. Name -- Gets (resolves to) or sets the name of the SyndicationPerson.
5. URI -- Gets (resolves to) or sets the URI of the SyndicationPerson.
What is it that you seek from the blob (data object) outlined above re.
FOAF? Do you want the FOAF profile document URI in #5? Do you want to
transform this data object into a FOAF profile object?
