Dare Obasanjo's review of OpenSocial

Its always good to get different perspectives, in this case Dare Obasanjo (who, for the record works for Microsoft but is blogging his own opinion) provides a critical review of the OpenSocial API in comparison to Facebook:

"In general I believe that any effort to standardize the widget/gadget APIs exposed by various social networking sites and AJAX homepages (e.g. iGoogle, Netvibes,, etc) is a good thing... Given that Web widgets are now a known quantity, the time is ripe for some standardization.

That said, there are a number of things that give me cause to pause with regards to OpenSocial"

Its a technical perspective, but worth reading. Care of Brad Feld.
