XFN (XHTML Friends Network)

XFN (XHTML Friends Network)

Much ado about relationships – Eric Meyer has announced XFN (XHTML Friends Network). This is what I would term as a stripped down implementation of FOAF. Now typically I would debate why anyone would want to create just another FOAF, but Eric made some good points. If we look at the adoption rate of FOAF you can see that is has been anything but a movement in the web scene. XFN hopes to remedy that situation through simplification and thus ease of use. I wish best of luck to Eric and crew, it’s not going to be easy… but at this point I would rather see something, anything, adopted than nothing at all.
