The Open Social Web – OpenSocial and other emerging standards


There were some nice presentations on the open, social web delivered at Google I/O 2010 in May. My favorite was Chris Messina’s presentation titled The Open and Social Web, which can be viewed below:

After viewing the above video, I came across the following video from Google I/O 2008 titled OpenSocial: A Standard for the Social Web:

It presents a nice overview of what OpenSocial is all about (or was all about at its birth in 2008), and the motivation behind its development.

As Chris Messina discusses in his Google I/O 2010 presentation, Google’s work on open social standards extends beyond just OpenSocial standards – including OpenID, OAuth, WebFinger and Salmon, but the principle of the thing – open social web standards – is the same.
