New XFN profile

Posted Aug 16, 2004 in Blogging, Family, Friends, XHTML.

The Global Multimedia Protocols Group has come up with XFN 1.1 - a new profile for the XHTML Friends Network. Three new relationships have been added:

  1. Contact
  2. Kin
  3. Me

I'm not sure I see a great deal of value in the latter relationship (linking to alternate URIs for yourself), but the other two are certainly welcome. As soon as I need one of the new values, I will update my head element accordingly.

    I'm still waiting for the following:

    Second Cousin
    Third Cousin twice removed and finally

    Once these identifiers have been implemented, I feel the XFN system will be complete.

    Well it is all about relationships, isn't it? So "alien" is probably inappropriate. How about these relationships:


    Hover over the "Winer" link in my blogroll for a giggle.

    It might be inappropriate, but sometimes I've determined that some individuals are aliens. Or, so it seems. When I worked for the government (no, not Flowers by Irene) in the Department of Social Services I encountered several participants who I believe were aliens.
