Comments on FOAF and SNSes

Christopher Allen, whom I met at the recent blogger/new media dinner event in San Francisco put together by Susan Mernit, Deeje Cooley, and J.D. Lasica, offers his advice to social networking services (abbreviated SNS or YASNS, for “yet another” social network software / system / service), in an entry at his Life With Alacrity blog that flanks his comment on my orkut faux pas from a week or so ago.
On the other flank of his orkut entry is a post detailing some keen observations about hand-crafted FOAF.
