Yup know it quite well.  This was mainly being driven by Paul Trevithick
but I think he left azigo now to do something else.

It was one of a slew of web 2.0 projects that wanted innovate around
identity.  None of them really got the power of linked data, apart from
this one I think which had elements of foaf in it.

That wiki page was an excellent resource, but hasnt really been updated in
3 years

Higgins is a great idea, and Paul is a great guy, but im not sure it's too
active (please correct me if that's wrong).  Definitely a good one to learn
ideas from.
