Extending FOAF
I've been compiling a lot of extension to FOAF for the FriendBlab project. I'm simply amazing that FOAF doesn't have most of this stuff. And there's lots more to come.

What is an RSS Feed?
Many websites provide feeds of their content that you can subscribe to, almost always for free. It's simply a way for you to keep up with changing content on websites without having to visit each site individually. You'll find feeds on just about any news website along with blogs and other sites with content that changes frequently.

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. There hasn't really been a standard way to indicate the presence of a feed on a web page, although many companies are working to change this. For now, you might see any number of icons to let you know when a feed is available. Some of the most popular include: , , and . Other sites might just have text that says "subscribe", etc.

In many cases, when you click on these buttons, you are presented with a page of XML code that means little to the average user. In fact, most don't know what to do with it. New browser technology is helping to clean this process up by auto-discovering feeds and presenting a preview of the content in a more user-friendly fashion. However these browsers typically force readers to subscribe using the browser and not any of the dozens of other tools available.

This feedpass for The RSS Blog uses feedpass.com to provide you with the easiest possible feed subscription using literally dozens of popular tools.

What is a tag or social bookmark?
Tagging and social bookmarking is essentially a way for users to share their favorites, or bookmarks, with others. Users can see what items are popular with other users that share similar interests. You can easily organize links and favorites for access from any computer, not just the one where the item was initially tagged. Users create keywords, called tags, to categorize the item.
