In an upcoming spin off on Movable Type, the folks at Six Apart are including support and networking of Friend of a Friend files from their upcoming product TypePad. It will be exciting to see where they go with this service. If they just link between their hosted page it will be little better than other closed systems such as Ryze and the like. the power of FOAF is to reach far and wide and find tangential relationships among would be relations. How they implement the network and how preemptive they are in it’s inter and intra communications will be key to it’s success.
And besides feeling that it’s probably time to find another Blogging software (again), it is cool to see the FOAF format being implemented into a larger product.
