How can I make a web-based drag and drop database?

I’d like to make a web 2.0-type database type service using ajax.

It’s going to be a social networking visualization application that will be used to store information about contacts I’ve made. For example, each person I know would have their own little box and I would link them together if they knew each other.

For example:

Frank <---> Lauren
Me <-----> Melissa <-----> billy

This would mean that I know Billy through Melissa and that I know Frank who knows Lauren.

Basically, it would be an easy way to view your network and add things about them that would appear in their boxes such as their contact info, hobbies, etc.

Anybody have some ideas to get started? Thanks!
