Its been a while and after chatting with gabriele and roberto at the eZ conference i've started to look at this again.
We have watched as a flurry of articles, blogs, discussions have appeared about OpenSocial since it was launched by Google. Regardless of the politics of discussing Google v Facebook I want to get on and try it out.
My aim for this project is is simply to produce a working implementation of the OpenSocial API within eZ.
I encourage everyone to read the OpenSocial API: http://code.google.com/apis/opensocial.
It is very suprising how incomplete it is! As I do presently like Google I fully expect the API to evolve quickly and eventually mature. By then we should be in a very good position to support our users's content across eZ and non-eZ sites.
