I'm new to the rdfweb-dev list. I signed up because I was looking for  
exactly this kind of thing. I like the idea of social networking being  
decentralized and unlimited, "outside the walled garden" as you say. I'm  
also reading the OpenID/Yadis mailing list and took part in some  
discussions on it. Do you know http://videntity.org/? This is a project  
that uses FOAF and OpenID - you can add your friends from every service  
with their URL. I'm working on something similar but it may take some time  
as I'm only a single person with limited resources. Is there any wiki,  
forum, newsgroup or mailing list about the topic "unlimited social  
networking"? If not, would anyone be interested to start discussions about  
I have a vision of a world where you can do all the things that myspace  
users can do with each other no matter where there website is located.
