Webfinger enabled for @aol.com

Being able to discover meta-data about an identity (via the identity's identifier) is an important piece of the Federated Social Web. Evan Prodromou recently wrote...
An important part of identity is addressability – having a machine readable address that computers and people can use to find you, and only you.
As a way to enable "addressability" for AOL users, Webfinger discovery is now available for all email addresses in the aol.com domain. Discoverable information includes the identity's OpenID provider and profile URL.
