  • a lot of networks don't build in support for banning/blocking/abuse
  • the convenience of creating and establishing an openid...
    • friending... blocking universally... across all sites...
    • maybe it will prevent abuse because the value to an abuser of a reputable openid is high... i can block people universally based on their single openid...
  • pownce... you add someone as friend... goes into friend requests... accept friend / no, leave as fan
  • openid for friends: add as friend, leave as fan, deny
  • drop friend requests list... only have fans list... then check your fans list to add someone as a friend...
  • be able to request the ability to follow... without annoying someone with a friend request...
  • no way to remove fans from your page
  • people feel bad listing best friends ... myspace/facebook? people will lie... people will go after someone's best friends...
  • people on livejournal edit their friends list often... there's a cost to having a long list of friends... binge and purge is how you cloak decay
  • give choice on length of expiration...
  • decay could fall all the way down to fandom
  • proximity + context + group (grid model...)... time, tags, geo...
  • imagine your friends as records in the itunes library... all the different types of smart filters...
  • how or do you re-share information?
    • Groups**
  • on openid endpoint... could list rel-groups... site could pull in all your groups... and subscribe to them... if you remove a link to a group, you've unsubscribed
  • use oauth to maintain our list of groups?
