  • FOAF-a-matic Mark 2 Beta 2

    Leigh Dodds has released FOAF-a-matic Mark 2 Beta 2 today.  I must say that it is quite beautiful.  I haven’t looked at the FOAF that it produces, but like many, I started my FOAF file with the original FOAF-a-matic. FOAF-a-matic was definately a good base, as my FOAF doesn’t piss off Rosco even after tons of hacking in a text editor.

    Cheers Leigh!
