Hello all,

My name is Toby and I'm an alcoholic^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H invited effort.

I'm involved in the Microformats community, and have a general  
interest in web semantics - especially in bridging the gaps between  
the human- and machine-readable web.

I've also recently joined the libre.fm development team, a project  
which Matt Lee has already announced on this mailing list. As the  
software developed by the project can be downloaded and installed by  
anyone locally, I'm interested in what this interest group's work on  
decentralised social networks might be able to bring to libre.fm in  
terms of cross-installation subscriptions and groups.

I've personally always resisted joining the latest  
MyFriendBookSpaceClub.com-type sites, believing that if I've got my  
own website I should be able to use that as my online hub. The Web is  
The Social Network (or at least, I think it should be). I hope that  
this interest group goes a small way towards achieving that.
