[wp-hackers] Dynamic User Pages - How Does BuddyPress do it?

Well depends on what you want to list about your users.

Is the user data stored as user meta? If so, you can simply do

echo get_user_meta( $_member->ID, 'meta_key1', true ):

You can also try accessing that directly from the $_member object:

echo $_member->meta_key1;

As far as I remember WP_User was using the magical __get() method, which
dynamically loads any un-existing properties of the object.
