We know all about Google’s charity work – now deadly rival Yahoo and the still-going social network MySpace have all joined together to create a non-profit social networking development tool.
The “community-governed” OpenSocial Foundation is designed to give the community a neutral (ie, DEFINITELY NOT MICROSOFT) social networking standard. Based around Google’s existing OpenSocial format, the three tech companies are doing this entirely for your benefit – and will have the OpenSocial Foundation fully operational as a charity by July.
Together, the three brave internet companies will become INVINCIBLE! (ie, might not get bought/crushed by Microsoft).
