Welcome to FoaFMe!

FoafMe is a project dedicated to give you a simple to use editor for your FOAF files.
It runs as Java application on any desktop you have. It also provides browsing the net of
connected foaf files and uploading your foaf file using ftp.

FoafMe is a Java application. The advantage of java is that you can use it on any platform
you want and that it works offline, you do not have to be connected to the web to edit your file.
Only when you upload your file, you will need an internet connection. You can either upload the file
yourself or use the internal FTP client of foafMe.

Coordination will take place on the SemWeb07 page.
