Couple of update thoughts on YASNS / widgets
1) Yes, of course I'm predicting the triumph of closed platforms because I believe "Netocracy" is coming. (Exclusive networks.) Even if Alexander Bard dismisses Facebook ... it is a herald of netocracy
2) Interesting annecdote about cultural distinctions inside and outside Facebook. When I suggested I might hook up the RecentChanges on ThoughtStorms to have it automatically update Twitter, my friend Scribe immedietely offered to stop following me on Twitter; he didn't want updates automatically generated by programs. That's the differene with FB. If I hooked RecentChanges up to Facebook's news-feed, no-one would bat an eyelid.
3) More widget talk.
