ePortfolios using Atom and FOAF - redux
Nils Peterson has done an interesting proof-of-concept for my assertion in a previous item about the suitability of Atom and FOAF for e-Portfolios.
This is especially interesting after bumping into the ELGG developers at the ePortfolio conference in Cambridge recently: the feeds-and-FOAF approach is certainly not mainstream in that community, so work like this by Nils is going to be extremely useful in opening up the discourse.
Needless to say, I'm also grateful that a practical attempt at demonstrating one of my ideas has (a) happened and (b) didn't immediately invalidate it!
