What a great rant.

I particularly like this about OpenSocial

Why don't they just call it OpenGadget - or even better 'ClosedGadget' - cause where's the open?

I'm withholding further judgment on OpenSocial until the Data APIs get firmed up and they get implemented on a Google property and at least one other 3rd party site. I've actually already implemented my interpretation of the People Data API on Ecademy but took it down again when it became clear that the Data Apis are works in progress likely to change radically soon.

I do hope DataPortability comes to something and doesn't turn out to be another nude but sunburnt emperor.
