Impressive Google Campfire One
3 November 2007
Google created a new style event called Campfire One complete with tree stump to launch their OpenSocial API and let their partners demo their social apps. OpenSocial reminds me of the Silverlight demos at MIX07 where the commercial partners were able to design, implement and deploy their apps in a matter of weeks. In the case of Myspace they were able to have an OpenSocial app (Flixster) built and embedded into user’s profile page in just 36 hours! The YouTube video although 56 minutes long is worth watching. Will Facebook and Microsoft dare join?
