Though explicit social networking could be considered the hot new trend in software today, it is a solution without a context. Only by placing digital Identity, social networking and web services into a particular context – can their full potential be exploited.

Next generation on-line communities will combine all their predecessor’s features (message boards and blogging/RSS) with a timely relevance to individuals and particular groups of people.

What’s been missing from social networking up until now are the activities and transactions that should follow once people have found each other!
Yes! So we can find each other - then what? It is not that hard to find each other any longer. But then what do we do? Send e-mail to each other? We could use better ways of existing in the same space as a bunch of other people, and sharing things we need and want to share, without over-simplified approaches like us having to join the same forum on some proprietary site. We need ways of not having to worry about the details. I should be able to concentrate on what I'd like to share with who, and from whom I'm interested in what, rather than having to bounce around trying to end up on as members of the same forums as them.
