OpenSocial Wrap-up

Like the rest of the Web X.0 community, I have been slammed with news about the OpenSocial API proposed by El GOOG.

Here is a quick wrap-up for those of you that want to dive in:

The coalition of the willing is announced
Ning founder, spokesperson for the coalition, speaketh
OpenSocial arrives and (sigh), still a ways to go
Dare takes a crack at defining it
OpenSocial gets hacked
The world wonders, will Facebook join the party?
And hacked again.

Plaxo and Ning support down.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. More to come as always fellow dorks.

  • Are there plans for Clearspring widgets to play nicely with OpenSocial sites?

  • Ming you are too good.

    Justin, we definitely are planning w/OpenSocial in mind.

    OpenSocial still hasn't caught up yet. Just look at the number of books or programmers available to do OpenSocial compared to Facebook app developers.
