Yeah it's a great tool. I made a start yesterday at an addon command for 
looking up FOAF etc data on the person associated with the current page.

See http://danbri.org/2008/ubisg/ for my experiment. It currently only 
calls the 'otherme' JSON lookup from Google's Social Graph API, but even 
that can be handy. Note that there are still a few bugs in Ubiquity, you 
might need to copy my Javascript code directly into Ubiquity 
command-editor for it to work.

cheers,

Dan
