So it might be nice if Flickr pointed to profile pages,
which publish hCard identifying the links, e.g:
<a href="/photos/24172116 at N08/" rel="me">← Photos</a>

You know, I don't think link to a vcard is going to help here.
Google's social graph search:
Contacts you link to
People who link to you as a contact
to flickr.com/photos/24172116 at N08/
Which is better, IMO, than it saying "Keir", "Tantek", "Tom"
because ultimately whilst flickr.com/photos/tantek/ might claim
to be Tantek, how I come to trust it's The Tantek
is far more subtle and complex than any amount
of metacrap in a hCard.
