Thanks Ric, I do now.


I had a vague prototype for peer to peer social networking software over XMPP [protocol for iChat&GTalk] that I cooked up for a dissertation at uni. I never got it far enough to be of any use though. I see it as being like email: at first there were 3-7 closed networks and there was no real uptake outside certain groups; then everyone moved to SMTP/POP and it's ubiquitous.

Besides why should I give my personal information to someone else and then buy it back?? You don't want a website, you want a protocol!
