Hi Sean,

Thanks for the feedback. I've put a little more info into
http://norman.walsh.name/2003/06/06/karma which will appear soon.

| I personally use HTTP URIs with hashes in my FOAF file [2] to identify

FWIW, the SHA1 of your mailbox in that file is apparently not for the
email address you've published on your home page. Which is fine,
except for the fact that the SHA1 I get for your published mailbox
isn't the same as your own.

I suppose I should just add yours hash to my Palm and use that,
but...maybe you didn't intend them to be different.

                                        Be seeing you,
