Activity Streams: Moving Beyond Event Aggregation

Collaborative Thinking

I'm also optimistic that the effort can be aligned and integrated into OpenSocial. FriendFeed harvests information from a variety of sources (music, photos, status messages), forcing the company to develop/maintain custom integrations for many different publishers and slowing down the ability to add new publishers. A common integration framework based on standard interfaces and formats would enable solution scalability and allow publishers to be added more quickly.

If someone you follow updates their status, shares a link or file, “retweets”/replies to a post, then those updates become visible to all followers – if all parties are using the same social network site or application (with some brute-force integration exceptions). In this mode, it has intriguing community-building value. One of the “hot topics” related to micro-blogging, activity streams, and social networking in general has been the concept of “following”.

"Collaboration and Community" by Scott London

John Tropea - Delicious Community

In a time of widespread frustration with politics-as-usual, in which confrontation, hierarchy, and exclusion characterize our primary means of problem-solving, the principles of collaboration are seen by many organizations, communities, and civic leaders as a more effective means of working for change than forming coalitions, task forces, commissions, interest groups, and other, more traditional kinds of partnerships.
