OCLC doing interesting things with OpenSocial

And yes that's OCLC, not OSLC.

Rogue Gadgets: Ian Boston: OCLC recently launched WorldShare, an OpenSocial based platform that uses Apache Shindig to render Gadgets and provide access for those gadgets to a wealth of additional information feeds. It does not provide the container in which to mount the Gadgets but it provides a trusted and respected source of rendered Gadgets. This turns the OpenSocial model on its head. A not for profit organisation delivering access to vast stores of information via OpenSocial and the Gadget feeds. Suddenly the gadget rendered feed is the only thing that matters. The container could be provided by OCLC, but equally by members. OCLC has wisely decided to certify any gadget that it is prepared to serve.
