Doxory FOAF and OpenID

Doxory FOAF
Originally uploaded by danbri.

Just took a look at, a site that lets your friends run your life. First thing: it’s a joy not to be asked to think of a new username and password: you can login with OpenID. In my case, this means I’ll use LiveJournal. Secondly, it’ll check for friends it knows about who are in any FOAF file you specify (wish I knew exactly how it did this…). So that’s pretty cool. Also I’m reminded how forward-thinking Live Journal are: OpenID, FOAF and – recently – Jabber too.

Somehow this is my most popular picture on Flickr. I have no idea why: I don’t think it is blogged or linked from anywhere else, nor does it have suggestive title or tags. Maybe it is just confusing enough that people give in to the urge and click on it, … whereas many other photos can be viewed in miniature without looking at them closely?
