+ - Father of web 2.0 slams Google OpenSocial

Submitted by Stony Stevenson
Stony Stevenson (954022) writes "Tim O'Reilly, the father of the term 'web 2.0', has denounced Google's OpenSocial as "boring" and a "full blown disappointment". OpenSocial offers a standard for applications on social networks that allow developers to market applications on any network supporting the standard. The standard does not unlock data from the participating network, however, which might have allowed a MySpace user to exchange messages with a LinkedIn user, for example.

In a posting on a company blog, O'Reilly described the lack of data sharing as a "fundamental failure " to understand two key principles of web 2.0: open data and loosely coupled applications or services. "We do not want to have the same application on multiple social networks. We want applications that can use data from multiple social networks," he said."
