A smarter man than I

Or at least a more well known man than I: Tim O’Reilly (the man credited with coining the term “web 2.0”, which should put me right off him, but I’ll get over that) is less than impressed with OpenSocial. And why is he less than impressed? If I understand his post correctly, it is because OpenSocial fails to do exactly the things I wanted it to in my post on the subject:

  • Single data entry
  • (User) Control over the flow of information

This may be a case of data and solution architects having requirements that the application functionality can’t deliver. But that doesn’t mean that the requirements are wrong or should go away. So we continue to wait.
