FOAF-a-matic is a simple JavaScript application that allows you to create a FOAF (Friend-of-A-Friend) description of yourself. FOAF is a way to describe yourself using XML and RDF. This allows software to process these descriptions, perhaps as part of an automated search engine, to discover information about your and the communities of which you're a member. FOAF has the potential to drive many new interesting developments in online communities.
