Using FOAF for authentication in webapps:

* SharedID: Single Sign On via FOAF

Aggregators, user interfaces, visualization systems etc... let's collect links first, reorganise as we go...

* Zopto: Foaf community
* eikeon's FOAF: Web View
* Elmo contains a set of tools for crawling, smushing and validating FOAF profiles
* myfoafexplorer java 1.5 applet used to browse a scientific network (papers, groups,...) based on FOAF
* FOAF-inator is a FOAF navigation tool developed in PHP. 
* FOAFMap: Display FOAF profiles (groups and personnal) on a Google Map
* Other CoolStuff
* ...others

What user-oriented software packages are exploring FOAF support?

   * does FOAFNaut count? It's software, but it's a webpage, it's an SVG and Javascript webpage application thingumy, ...
   * foafbot will chat to users in an IRC channel, recounting things it has learned from reading the Web of FOAF documents.
   *  Spring v1.3+ has some FOAF support (see foaf weblog for detail).
   * WinRSS has support for FOAF (through connecting to FoaF Explorer).

   * [3] Bourne shell scripts for maintaining and generating foaf.
   * FoafGeoGraph Perl script to extract geo information from FOAF files and plot them using xplanet.  Shows how to use XML::FOAF for the simple things such as the name, and how to use RDF::Core::Statement to get at more than one seeAlso and the geo:lat and geo:long inside the  foaf:based_near (as well as fetching foaf files from the web).
   * [4] PHPWiki Basic Foaf Profile Viewer - in progress, part of wider effort to Foaf Enable applications like PHPwiki, phpbb, phplist etc. Similar to SharedID.
