Tribe.net does DataLibre

I just found out via Marc Canter that Tribe.net is now allowing users to upload their FOAF (self-published, Friend-of-a-friend, xml doc) to their social networking site. DataLibre anyone?

They've gone one step further and have allowed for exporting to a FOAF file aswell. The data is not a prisoner, and the user can move around freely if they wish to other sites with their data.

What I love about this most of all is that t forces a service to be creative and innovate with the service itself instead of leaning on the crutch of having trapped users with locked in data.

Nice, enlightend move Tribe.net!

Link for DataLibre
The link for DataLibre might be http://datalibre.com/ instead of http://datalibre.net/
I guess.
