Transplanting the garden with Google's Social Graph API

Leave it to Brad Fitzpatrick and the gang at Google to finally come up with an API for this. His video is worth the 2 minute investment to get a sense of where they're taking things. According to the docs page:
The Social Graph API now makes information about the public connections between people on the Web, expressed by XFN and FOAF markup and other publicly declared connections, easily available and useful for developers.
Excellent start to externalizing the graph as well as keeping it fully decentralized. Kudos to all involved!
