Structure[edit]

Should I put a reference to google gadgets here? http://code.google.com/apis/gadgets/ Melvster 17:09, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

Governance[edit]

Under what governance is the open social reference implementation? Does google have benevolent dictator status or will the structure be more open? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.1.42.64 (talk) 02:49, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

Official Link[edit]

The OpenSocial page that everyone references doesn't actually exist, nor have I seen exist any time in the last 48 hours or so - what's going on? EAi 00:35, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

It's been readded despite being a 404 at this time. I removed it again, and it shouldn't be added until/unless it works. Oren0 02:06, 2 November 2007 (UTC)
What do you mean, "rm dead link again"? When was it removed the first time? Dancter 02:49, 2 November 2007 (UTC)
My fault. I thought about removing it in my first round of edits. I thought I had removed it at that point but I guess not. Oren0 03:37, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Reception[edit]

Should we add this to a criticisms section? http://radar.oreilly.com/archives/2007/11/opensocial_social_mashups.html Melvster 14:51, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

Criticisms are difficult to cover properly on Wikipedia, but are often important. I'm wary of a separate section for just criticisms, but perhaps a "Reception" section that includes various reactions including criticisms would be better. Dancter 15:15, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
Good idea, I'll see if i can dig up some articles representing various parties views on the launch Melvster 16:38, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

Hello, world[edit]

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<Module>
  <ModulePrefs title="Hello, PHP World" />
  <Content type="html">
  <![CDATA[
    Hello, world!
  ]]>
  </Content>
</Module>

Was thinking of adding this, as per:

I think this is a good format http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swing_(Java)#Example Melvster (talk) 17:33, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

External Links[edit]

Added the Google 'Whats up with opensocial' page - is pretty much the definitive guide of what's going on Melvster (talk) 12:58, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

Yahoo further embraces opensocial[edit]

http://www.technewsworld.com/edpick/62762.html?welcome=1209164370 the article talks about the Opensocial Foundation. Mathiastck (talk) 23:05, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Layperson's Perspective[edit]

For those of us who are not developers, describe the real world examples of the daily impact to people who visit participating OpenSocial sites. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 63.150.66.34 (talk) 21:40, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Criticisms[edit]

Criticisms are out of date. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.251.254.172 (talk) 16:34, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Cleanup[edit]

While I'm not going to take on all the WP:SOAP problems here, I'm going to remove the most blatant. In the process I removed a reference that might be used elsewhere:
