Fingerpoint is a protocol allowing people to associate data (such as their name, homepage link, etc) with their e-mail address, and allowing third parties to discover that information. It is similar in spirit to the finger protocol and the webfinger project.

This site hosts the draft specification for Fingerpoint, and a free command-line tool implementing client support for it.

You can also perform a Fingerpoint query using the web form below.
