I've been writing a set of standards and its reference implementation
in Rails about distributed social networking. I hope that publishing a

I'll keep it short.

decentralised and does not depend on a central server. URIs are used
as unique identities and identify people on the network.
I have named the project "Kopal" and the project homepage is
This project is very new (and the idea too, I hope), and I am looking
for issues, bugs, feature requests, ideas. Please report it if you
have one at http://code.google.com/p/kopal/issues/list
This is an open standard.
