XFN indexer: xhtmlfriends.net

I can’t tell you how nice it is to see xhtmlfriends.net. I’ve been waiting for something to start crawling pages like Google, looking for the networks between friends, acquaintences, etc. If Google didn’t do it, someone had to.

If you don’t have any idea what I’m talking about, good for you – you’re not a geek. If you just patted yourself on the back for not being a geek, give me a moment to geekify you.

XFN is just a fancy 3-letter acronymn (duh!) for a set of rules that web developers hope will eventually tie people together. No more Friendster, Odeo, etc. You think services and businesses are distributed now? Just wait. This little geeky technology, exploited correctly, will yield a world of connectivity and knowledge about who knows who that you couldn’t have even imagined.

Go ahead, try to imagine it. I dare you. I’m telling ya, your head will explode.
