FOAF Workshop Galway 2004

Now isn’t that a nice logo? The irish city of Galway hosts the “1st Workshop on Friend of a Friend, Social Networking and the Semantic Web”.

I especially like the logo they made. The Galway area is famous for the Claddagh Ring, a symbol combining friendship (the hands), loyalty (the crown) and love (the heart). Could there be a better suited symbol for FOAF? I’m surprised nobody came up with this sooner.

Actually, how about a Claddagh ring with an RFID chip carrying your FOAF file? Now there’s a way for all these irish jewellers into the next generation of rings… ;)
