Maybe the reference to the Justice League caught my eye with the OpenSocial Foundation Debuts With Yahoo Onboard
“…it’s like the Justice League of social media: Google, Yahoo, and News Corp.’s MySpace.com announced on Tuesday that they have formed the OpenSocial Foundation, a non-profit group to support the OpenSocial initiative that Google kick-started last year as a way to promote a universal standard for developer applications on social-networking sites.
The specific purpose of the new non-profit, according to a release, is “to ensure the neutrality and longevity of OpenSocial as an open, community-governed specification for building social applications across the web.” It’s a particularly crucial move for Google, which has been eager to emphasize that OpenSocial is a community standard, not a Mountain View project. “
I wonder what “special power” each one of the Social Networks has? Maybe the OpenSocial Foundation will be housed in a Fortress somewhere. Should be interesting where this all goes.
