The Web is the Platform...Almost

Yep, "Maka-Maka" has exploded and Google's codnamed initiative, now OpenSocial, is set to bring us one step closer to an unbound web. Next step? Decentralize the social graph! With heavy hitters like Bebo, the kids at Six Apart, LinkdIn, fast-growing Imeem, and that black sheep in Santa Monica jumping aboard OpenSocial (ahem, will the giant white elephant in the room here please exit, its making this awkward) that golden carrot of the web is the platform is appearing ever nearer still. What we have to look forward to:
Near future: semantic search; two-way API's; open data; agencies now hiring: social linguists; micro-micro-niching. Utopian future: decentralized everything.
