Maybe I’m just tired

Big news of the day: OpenSocial (see here, here, or here for coverage).

So:
A) We all knew this was coming (didn’t we?).
B) It *is* a good thing,

…but…

I’m really left flat by the whole thing. Maybe that’s because we knew it was coming; maybe it is because I’m just tired; or maybe (maybe) there’s something bigger in my reaction.

I think the whole “open social graph/user controlled data” space is very necessary, and nearly inevitable — I’m just not excited by the APIs that make it happen. I mean, from a user’s perspective there’s nothing here that makes me stand up and shout.

Is that just me?

P.S. Defrag. Next week. Be there. (Everyone else will be.)
