Hi Felix,

a few suggestions in addition to those already made:

1. Have a look at this document, it mentions almost all protocols or
standards which were at least potentially relevant for the Open Social
Web in 2010:

A Standards-based, Open and Privacy-aware Social Web
W3C Incubator Group Report
6th December 2010

2. The XMPP community has created several XEPs for publish-subscribe

3. Regarding permissions (and privacy) some interesting work has been
done at DERI by Owen Sacco and others using FOAF. Most or all of the
papers are listed here:
