OpenSocial y su blog: OpenSocial API blog. Google se nos hace social-apista?

Se ha estrenado el blog de OpenSocial de Google. Se llama : OpenSocial API blog y su primer post comienza tal que así: "The web is better when it's social"

Friday, November 2, 2007 at 1:15 AM

There's no denying that the web enables communication. The killer apps of the web -- email, instant messaging, blogging -- have enabled us to communicate with our friends, family, and the rest of the world on a large scale. But there is a newer characteristic of the web that has been emerging: to become social. The first wave of killer apps allowed us to communicate with the world at scale. The next wave is about connecting us and our online activities with our friends.

Social networks have seen that next wave, and have started opening up developer APIs to enable third-party innovation on their websites. This is a great thing, but it has also led to a growing number of APIs which a developer must learn. So we took a look at the state of the web and asked how we could make development easier for both websites and developers. Out of that exercise came OpenSocial.

OpenSocial is a set of common APIs that will work on many different social websites, including MySpace, Hi5, Ning, orkut, and LinkedIn, among others. In addition, this allows developers to learn one API, then write a social application for any of those sites. Learn once, write anywhere, if you will. And because it's built on web standards like HTML and JavaScript, developers don't have to learn a custom programming language."
Me permito traer hoy, como complemento a la noticia, algo que hasta ahora no había hecho, copio y pego de mi google reader todo lo que me ha entrado sobre OpenSocial, el api(Application Programming Interface) de moda junto con el gOS, y el nuevo google PC(el sistema operativo de Google, que mañana comentaremos cuando haya más cosas en la red):
