Huh? Medieval Facebook What Now?

Several folks have linked to the story "Social Networking Gets Medieval," but I have to confess, even after reading the article and the comments of Matthew Gabriele and Jonathan Jarrett (found on Gabriele's site), I still can't figure out what they've done or why it's considered important.

Or maybe I can figure out what they've done, but it seems so unimportant that I'm convincing myself I don't understand it. After all, the article itself says that "the network doesn’t yet say much about medieval life" -- maybe the idea is that study of social networks might someday say something about medieval life?

Any help here?
