Hi, I want to develop a plugin for BE.NET that will enable a blog to be part of a distributed social network. Basically this means that anyone who will use this plugin will be automatically  in a social network (with any site that has the plugin, it isn't restricted to BE.NET only). You will be able to add friends, create networks and join other people networks. No third party registratin required, your blog is the only account you'll need.

However, this can't be implemented as a simple extension and will require some patching of the BlogEngine.Core (if there is another method of adding modules please let me know). My question is if you find such plugin interesting enough so that you'll accept to have a modified BE.NET for it.

Please tell me what you think.

I'd be interested in knowing if there is any progress on this front. I am keen on more and better use of OpenId and RDF:FOAF as steps towards similar goals.
