Bingo. Someone has started to make sense. Loic Le Meur from Seesmic writes in this blog post on how he feels the need to aggregate his and his network’s activity at one place and that place to be his blog. Thats exactly what the world needs, IMHO. Probably its time to write a FriendFeed blog plugin or something which can put all activity on my blog. I feel that your blog or your OpenID page, should be your starting point on the web – a node where your social network starts.

“I feel that your blog or your OpenID page, should be your starting point on the web”
Exactly! We’re experimenting with this sort of thing at unripped.com — when you register for a new account we do a couple things to achieve the goal you describe:
* Issue you an OpenID of the form unripped.com/username
* The OpenID delegates to our unripped.org OpenID server so that unripped.com/username is more portable and the unripped.org could eventually become a backend permanent identity URL
* You can login to your OpenID url with your OpenID; this is laying the groundwork for your OpenID to be customizable.
Within a couple months we’ll release the code for the OpenID profiles so people can install at their own endpoints.
Nice post, I like the vision.
