At Six Apart, we'll be supporting the new OpenSocial initiative to make an open platform for social applications on the web. But for us, it's not about Google or Facebook. It's about the web itself. As you can guess from our announcement weeks ago that we're opening up the social graph, this is the sort of thing we believe in. Honestly, we don't care much about the political battles between big tech companies: We're doing this because this is what it takes for new features, applications, and experiences to happen in the right way for the vast range of communities that we serve. This gives regular people on the web more control over the social networks and applications they use.

In other news, I'm headed to London tonight for BarCamp Berlin, Web 2.0 Expo Berlin, and the Eduserv Foundation's OpenID event in London to talk about both OpenID and the social graph.

Something totally bizarre just happened (which is why I'm writing you...lol). I was logging OUT of one account and IN to this one, when I glimpsed "worst username ever" and it was yours! LOL. Er...I've seen worse. When I tried to find this again, it was lost.

Freaky, mayn. Happy TG, btw.
