Sorry forgot to send the link to the screen cast

The code is here:

It should be a couple of functions to write:
  1. do an HTTP GET on the WebID from JS - go through a proxy
  2. use the received graph to get a bit of info about the person

TimBLs code is W3C licenced, which I think is compatible with 

Anyway, I just want to point out that with WebID the message
is ease of use, power, user friendliness beyond what other
protocols allow. So demos should rise to the occasion to show
what can be done there.
