mhausenblas: Just as a url is an address for a website, an i-name is an Internet address for YOU!

tobyink: Could be better. The RDF/XML doesn't parse (weirdness with the foaf:OnlineAccounts); foaf:firstname should be foaf:firstName; foaf:address does not exist according to FOAF spec; foaf:img is given as a literal. There is XFN too, but it's weird (claims that Hilary is co-resident with a bunch of other senators), and difficult to parse as a bunch of </a> tags are missing.
