We are not re-branding existing things - but rather creating a single
brand that consumers can understand and developers can rally around. A
way of putting all the communities and standards in context -
including RDF. Much like 'Centrino' from Intel represents all the
moving technologies that make up their laptop/mobile platform.
I think that DP has the opportunity to be the Intel Inside sticker for
consumers looking for sites/apps that respect their rights and employ
a standard model of data portability.
Right now we are listing XFN as a way of describing friend connections
- however I am aware that many prefer FOAF for its richness - I think
there is still an open discussion on that. The other standards may
also be included if they find their way into the reference design:
Tim Berners Lee has an open invitation to join the workgroup - happy
for you to pass it onto Ivan if you like.
The goal here is not to replace what the W3C or any other group is
doing - only to shine a light on it and put it all in context for
people. And also to provide a complete end-to-end reference design so
we can move from debating the nuts and bolts and start implementing
