The first sentence of this article - that "Foafing the Music is the first music recommender system based on user's profile" - isn't accurate. Personal profiles have played a role since the 1998 Firefly system and continue to be important in Yahoo!'s Launch or the Canadian inDiscover recommender system. What is unique, however, is that the profile is publicly available in the form of a FOAF file, and that it may therefore be used not only in this application but in any other FOAF-compliant application.
