OpenSocial State of the Union

Moderated by: John Mertic
Location: E142 Level: Intermediate

Over the last four years or so, OpenSocial has grown organically in many different directions. While the landscape of consumer social networking has changed over the last several years, OpenSocial has continued to remain a vibrant community. We’ve seen explosive adoption among “domain specific” social networks in education and scientific research, as well as enterprise vendors such as SugarCRM, Jive Software, IBM and many others. Throughout this time, OpenSocial has continued to provide innovative solutions to the industry through the open specification and open source projects such as Apache Shindig and Rave.

In this BOF, you’ll learn about the new current status of the OpenSocial foundation, the direction for the foundation in the future, and how you can be part of the community.
