Silos I'm using regularly:
- Renren, the large OSN in China. It's a Facebook like model: http://www.renren.com/
- SinaWeibo, ("weibo" in Chinese means "micro-blog"). It's a twitter like model: http://weibo.com/
- TecentWeibo. It's another micro-blogging service in China. Due to the broad production line of Tecent, TecentWeibo has some unique access point (e.g. WeChat from a mobile device). http://t.qq.com/
Aggregation and distribution points on my site:
- The aggregated status update from those silos: http://hupili.net/feeds/all.xml . It's currently a mix of all materials. I'll separate the English and Chinese messages later.
Following is a visualization of my silo setups.

The IndieAuth model is interesting. I think the essence is to decouple ID provider and ID verifier. The two components were often binded in previous models, which is not natural in our real life. Consider a real-world example: I want to make friends with A and A want to make sure whether I'm me before that. It's very absurd for me to show A my ID card. Instead, there may be a B who has verified me some time ago (by looking at my ID or through a longer chain of trust). In B 's mind, my ID and my face have been binded. Using this information, B can come to tell A that I am indeed me.
