Some Experiments with the Future of Social Network Technology

I gave a presentation at the recent Dallas Social Network Technology event (yes, we're still trying to come up with a good name. Pictures here.). We ended up with something just over twenty people, but it was exactly the crowd we were hoping for: developers, startup-istas, entrepreneurs and business people actually "doing something" with social network technology. A quick canvas of the attendees indicated that a get-together maybe once a quarter or so, with a meetup for beers slightly more often, might be about right. There was some talk from the general direction of Alamofire about a game-focused event sometime in the fall, and I suspect there will be another general event between now and then.

The presentation was combined with a live demonstration of the Popcitation Facebook application, and both a Google and Facebook login to the Popciation destination site. (All of it, but especially popcitation.com, is a development spike to test out new technology, there's a good chance it won't work quite right for you.) I got about 10% of an OpenSocial version done, I'll try to finish that up in the near future.

Closing thought: it would be cool to have an OpenSocial container with DISO as the backend, huh? Need to do some more research along those lines, for all I know that's the standard assumption...
