- Meeting to solve the portable profiles and social networks problem once and for all
A bit last minute, but since Brian Oberkirch was in town (San Francisco), and I knew this is an important subject to him, I volunteered to announce it and see who showed up and what we could get done. Tantek
We got quite a bit done, check out the pages we created and edited as a result. (Thanks to ChristopheDucamp for the rapid French translations!)

- hcard-supporting-profiles (fr)
- hcard-xfn-supporting-friends-lists (fr)
There's defiinitely much more to be done, but we've got a very good start, with the basics of what social network sites need to do to both publish and subscribe/auto-sync portable social networks. I've added a few follow-up actions to my to-do list. Tantek
