In this episode of Taking Notes Julian Robichaux and I talk about all things OpenSocial with Ryan Baxter of IBM and Mikkel Heisterberg of IntraVision. We talk about:

  • What is OpenSocial? How did it get started?
  • How is IBM involved? How can I get involved?
  • How is IBM leveraging OpenSocial?
  • What is Apache Shindig and how is it connected to OpenSocial?
  • What are the advantages to building OpenSocial gadgets over existing technologies? Will I be able to leverage XPages?
  • How do I get started building gadgets?
  • What about the community? Is there a community built around OpenSocial, should the ICS community become involved?
  • How can we also leverage the OpenNTF community?
  • Where else can I leverage OpenSocial outside of embedded experiences?
  • What other companies are involved in OpenSocial?
  • What does IBM need from the ICS community when it comes to OpenSocial?

Also, here are some links to a few of the things we discussed in the podcast: the OpenSocial website, the OpenSocial sandbox, and Ryan’s Lotusphere slides.
