Justin, yeah, I realised some time afterwards the difference between the two, not that I'm really convinced it was worth the split.

Membership of a group could be implied by who has posted links to the group, but of course that doesn't deal with people who don't post.

Phil, btw, I think the "inbox" became the network in order to separate two different uses of the inbox: tracking people vs tracking tags. Apparently the two different forms had differing semantics.

that fake-user thing is a good trick! still, it'd be nice to have a way to assert membership of a group, as well as targeting links to a group. the fake-user trick doesn't help there I think.

also -- for the record, I've jotted down ideas about getting spicylinks web-based. unlikely I'm going to do anything about them soon, but worth writing them up anyway -- http://taint.org/wk/SpicyLinksNing

del.icio.us has had the "inbox" forever and ever, and that's basically the same as the network is now. In fact, I'm not sure I really understand the difference.

The whole social network bit used to be exposed in RDF by my FOAFlicious http://philwilson.org/foaflicious/ but I haven't updated it to use the new network thing yet.

The way my work colleagues and I formed a pretend group is by creating a user called "fred" (or whatever) and then using our own accounts to post links, and marking them "for:fred".

ignore 'on-offs' does sound neat. i'm also thinking a "what's popular within friends and friends of friends" feed might be good.
