Phillip Pearson - web + electronics notes

tech notes and web hackery from a new zealander who was vaguely useful on the web back in 2002 (see: python community server, the blogging ecosystem, the new zealand coffee review, the internet topic exchange).


Stupid question

If your fax number, many phone numbers, many of your e-mail addresses, URL, nicknames and IM addresses are sitting right there in your FOAF file, then why blur them out in the picture of the application you're developing?

Update: Edd just e-mailed me with the answer. Some of the blurred-out values in the picture are in fact not sitting right their in his FOAF file - they are only available in a separately-encrypted chunk of FOAF. Aha!
