Potential synergy with ORCID (http://www.orcid.org) and http://vivoweb.org/ .
In any case, great news for the Semantic Web. Thanks for the tip Jesse!

I would like to bring to subscribers' attention that Facebook now
supports RDF with Linked Data URIs from its Graph API.  The RDF is in
Turtle syntax, and all of the HTTP(S) URIs in the RDF are dereferenceable
in accordance with httpRange-14.  Please take some time to check it out.

If you have a vanity URL (mine is jesserweaver), you can get RDF about you:

curl -H 'Accept: text/turtle' http://graph.facebook.com/<vanity-url>
curl -H 'Accept: text/turtle' http://graph.facebook.com/jesserweaver
If you don't have a vanity URL but know your Facebook ID, you can use
that instead (which is actually the fundamental method).

curl -H 'Accept: text/turtle' http://graph.facebook.com/<facebook-id>
curl -H 'Accept: text/turtle' http://graph.facebook.com/1340421292
>From there, try dereferencing URIs in the Turtle.  Have fun!
