The topic came up from mattl on IRC of linking two accounts together, say, for example on and

I discussed the FOAF perspective with timbl and it seems there is a relatively straightforward solution to this:

1a. In foaf is at ( say )
1b. In foaf is at ( say )

2. You just need a add a sameAs link between the two in your FOAF.

<> sameAs <>

And you're done. 

Web 3.0 enabled search engines, visualization tools (e.g. tabulator), and inferencers, should be able to understand this and make semantic inferences appropriately.  It also makes federated single sign more straightforward.

"a hub sort of hub approach" it was described by timbl ... hope that helps!
