Subject: [foaf-dev] Announcement: WebCamp workshop on Social Network

I am happy to announce the "Social Network Portability" workshop
(co-located with BlogTalk) to be held in Cork, Ireland on the 2nd March
2008. You can view the wiki page for this event at

At this workshop, we will combine presentations with breakout sessions
to discuss all aspects of portability for social networking sites
(including accounts, friends, activities / content, and applications).

I would like to invite members of the FOAF-Dev mailing list to submit
ideas for presentation on the wiki page.

Topics of relevance include, but are not limited to, social network
centralisation versus decentralisation, OpenSocial, microformats
including XHTML Friends Network (XFN) and hCard, authentication and
authorisation, OpenID single sign-on, Bloom filters, categorising
friends and personas, FOAF, ownership of your published content, SIOC,
the OpenFriend format, the Social Network Aggregation Protocol (SNAP),
aggregation and privacy, permissions and context, the Extensible
Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP), the social graph and the giant
global graph.

You can register for this workshop in conjunction with BlogTalk 2008 at
http://www.amiando.com/blogtalk2008 (a nominal fee of €50 to cover food
and room costs). If you are interested in speaking or otherwise
participating in the workshop, please add your name under the Speakers
or Participants headings on the wiki page at
