Yes, an so are others like ODS. As I said to Melvin, ODS is basically a 
lonely senile great grand daddy :-)

For WebID to work we need to get past SWAT0, then up ante by resuming 
ACL demos. That's what we need right now. ODS awaits all WebID solutions 
that are interest in these kinds of interop endeavors.

Live instance entry points from where you can obtain a WebID in <= 5 Mins:

1. http://id.myopenlink.net/vsp/users/users.vsp
2. http://id.myopenlink.net/php/users/users.php
3. http://id.myopenlink.net/javascript/users/users.html
4. http://id.myopenlink.net/ods -- older interface that's more for 
functionality demo than anything else, just follow route to "edit profile" .


A few things that you can do with ODS right now, post obtaining a WebID.

1. Upload files to a Briefcase (WebDAV) then share with WebIDs 
individually or WebIDs that are part of a foaf:Group
2. Mount Briefcase to any OS with in-built support for WebDAV -- think 
3. Make Calendars and share Calendar Items or entire Calendara via WebID 
based ACLs
4. Make AddressBooks and share AddressBook or specific entries via WebID 
based ACLs
5. Same for Blogs, Bookmarks, Feed Manager, Photos etc..
6. Use SemanticPingback for Notifications
7. Much more.

Also note, ODS is Open Source with a plethora of interfaces based on 
industry standards. You only hit Virtuoso/PL (PSM-96 Persistent Stored 
Modules compliant SQL Stored Procedure Language) when enhancing the 
product kernel.
