Reflecting on 12 Months of Opening Up the Social Web

A few ago, I was in DC for the Graphing Social Patterns East conference, where I was on a panel moderated by Brian Oberkirch. Before the panel, he shot a video interview with me that he just put up today.

It’s a pretty decent “deep dive” on the topic of progress toward opening up the Social Web, and I highlight the last remaining issue, which I assert will get decided on not by fiat, but by marketplace competition. The issue? Is a friends list like and address book, with an undisputed single owner, or is it joint property of all the people on it? If that’s of interest to you, I think you’ll enjoy this video.
