Just my opinion, your thoughts welcome
- Must have Twitter integration, in and out
- Must be visible across all web services, using RSS as the universal glue
- Must accept OpenID, if not also be an OpenID provider to boot
- Must be SEO friendly, if not a downright SEO “juicer”
In short, openness, visibility, and portability are necessary and sufficient for its success.
My idea would be for an “open” data store based upon OpenID trusts to extend personal profiles across web services. Yeah – I know there are already groups out there trying to grok this in group thought.
Someone just needs to do it and let the market decide. The internet has enough committees.
Hate to think what Twitter would look like if designed by committee… or community for that matter.
