Anyone else?


Basically, all you really have to do is just let me (the resource owner) 
know how you want to be identified. Examples would include:

1. Twitter -- http://twitter.com/<userid> e.g., http://twitter.com/kidehen
2. LinkedIn -- http://www.linkedin.com/in/<userid> e.g., 
3. Facebook -- http://www.facebook.com/<userid> e.g., 
4. etc..

Basically, each of these social networking/media service providers mints 
a verifiable URI for its members. In many cases, these days, you can 
verify these URIs by testing for control over said URIs using protocols 
such as OpenID, OAuth etc.. Naturally, you can also leverage WebID and 
its WebID+TLS authentication protocol in the same manner, just by 
sharing your WebID with the resource owner (me).

Remember, this is a "deceptively simple" example of the power of Linked 
Data applied to the following problems:

1. verifiable identity
2. resource access authorization .

Also note, we are going to be releasing this Javascript control as part 
of our ODS social web framework project on Github.
