A Peek Behind the Microsoft Research Curtain - Networking for the Client

C2, one of Microsoft's newest social networking projects, lets users access data from a variety of different sources, including e-mails and Facebook and MySpace profiles. C2 also lets users pull photographs from public sources and from files where permission has been given to view them.
