Nice to see some progress in the area of creating these reference architectures for this.

I have some questions -
1) Will there be an effort to create a reference implementation
2) Has there been an effort to identify and standards that are being/can be used between the interaction of the different capabilities identified in the architecture? eg openID, oAuth, RDF, DublinCore, etc?
3) How has the distinction of 'site' helped at all? I see most of the capabilities you distinguish as elements of social networking services which may or may not be used by just one site. In other words, I think if you relaxed the constraints described in the last paragraph of the post you'd end up with an architecture closer to what enterprises want, and more viable in an environment where many applications may interoperate with one or more services (see question #2), and representative of the trend to have sites aggregate and federate each others' information.


In particular I like the conclusion you've arrived at: following and paying attention to the right people can really make you more effective.
This says it all - knowing what the right people know is a commodity - it has always been the case but social networking now brings this concept into 3D.
