Just tried data.fm finally a bit more. It's fun.

1. In one WebId click I got an account
2. Then I created an bblfish.data.fm cloud in one click
3. Then because of my foaf profile I found that melvin and timbl were my friends clouds.

Very nice. Is someone going to put a quick paper together for this in Berlin? Even if Joe can't go, perhaps someone
else here can present it form him.

Really, anybody could get on and use it as either a storage platform, or create simple/powerful demos of real world apps using it today.
