As I could not log in to the wiki to edit the user stories page [1]  I  
thought I'd post them here now as I found some time to think about it.

1. linking to a remote friend

Alice is on social network A. Joe a friend of hers, is on Social  
Network B. Alice wants to add Joe to her list of friends. She drags  
the home page of Joe on SN B, to her friends list, and Joe appears as  
her friend. SN A and B need have no prior knowledge of each other.  
Alice did not need to create an account on SN B.

2. Access to a resource

Alice on SN A, Joe on SN B, and many others are working on a W3C  
project. The members of this group are listed on a W3C page. They  
would like to work with a very nice wiki tool provided by some third  
party. Alice creates an account for the group there by dragging the  
W3C member page on the admin section of the wiki asking who should  
have access to the wiki. Having done this all members of the wiki get  
access to the page. If members get added to the W3C project page, they  
get immediate access to the third party wiki. If some get removed,  
they loose their access rights.

3. Family access

Alice on SN A has two children, and 3 siblings. She published photos  
on that site, but she would only like her family to view those  
pictures (how deep the family tree goes should be something she can  
decide). Of course her parents and sisters are on completely different  
SN. Nobody should have to become a member of SN A in order to view the  

Is that along the right lines?
