Social Mobs

Every movie I've even see about the Mafia has, at some point, some tired detective looking at a wall board that lays out the hierarchy and relationships between the wise guys - this info collected through great effort and risk to life.

Imagine how much easier this would be if the Mob were to track this information themselves?

Perhaps microformats for the bloggers amongst them:
<a href="hitmanforhire.blogspot.com" rel="partner met">Vinnie the Snake</a>
<a href="blog.whore.com" rel="hired">Tiffany</a>
<a href="gustavo.com/blog" rel="hit ex-friend">Gus 'Floater' Agostino</a>

and Liberty People Service for the mafioso multitude
