I like LOAF

LOAF is a simple extension to email that lets you append your entire address book to outgoing mail message without compromising your privacy. Correspondents can use this information to prioritize their mail, and learn more about their social networks. The LOAF home page is at

Why do I like LOAF?

  • It's emergent: You don't need to maintain links to people in your network, it's mined from your address book
  • The user owns the data. No need to assign ownership of your friends to an aggregating monetizing marketing web site.

    Contrast the above with frienster/linkin/orkut/etc. I find it a pretty compelling proof-of-concept.

    Married in MA

    A friend of mine is getting married this week. Last week, she couldn't do that legally. Congratulations, Kim.
