OpenSocial

About: opensocial - google code

There seems to be a lot of buzz today on this.  I wonder if fbi will ever get in on this. Anyway the article is a nice collection of the successful social networking sites today.

Google has an API to use their search for your site.  This is probably like the XXX icon in the Google search bar.  The details are here. I find that the Google site search often yields better results than the tag search or title search.  Perhaps another radio button could be put on the page for Google.

This item was mostly a bookmark for google goodies.  My first comment about the search would be more useful, but if I am in fbi all I have to do is enter a search item into google toolbar and push the wierd
button.  The benefits of the search is that it can find text within an item or comment even if it is not tagged.
OTOH, I don't use any other social network software besides fbi.

I watched most of the movie and think that the opensocial api might might be useful to share identities with other sites.  Now i just need some motivation and time to make it happen.  Don't hold your breath.  
One thing i might be able to do would be to give special prividleges to group seth and group mark such that any HTML could be pasted into an item.  This would allow us to easily complose items from OpenSocial or from any other source.  Currently such HTML will be sanatized and can only be introduced directly throught db editing.  This change would allow it to be just pasted into the item after View Source was clicked if your goup is prividleged.  It would also make it easier to edit these item with additional text.

Do you understand what i am saying and would that be helpful to your usages?

That's fine and good but you didn't answer my question ... which might have been askew from your train of though but i still wanted answered.  Here is some background:   Lots of places give you HTML to past on your blog that do various things.  Google's OpenSocial is one case in point but there are many others too, for example the slide shows i use from my picasa web albums not to mention embedded maps.  But fbi does not normally allow any of thes to be pasted into the html editing screen (View Source) because it will, as you no doubt have noticed, sanitize that HTML.   But these gadgets are useful.  Well we could allow them to be pasted into an item for prividlidged groups.  Is that something that you think you need? ... or do you prefer to continue to go to the sql db editor instead? ... even bearing in mind that such an item can never then be edited normally.

Given that scenario it would certainly be useful. True, in doing the Google Moon Phase gadget in 8446 I certainly could have used it!
