2008, the year of Open Social Networks?

It really looks like that, the year is only 9 days old but already a lot did happen in that area:

and the latest news item: Google, IBM and Verisign are said to be joining OpenID

So all in all this goes faster than I thought. I remember that i saw quite some OpenID logos at the Web 2.0 Expo in Berlin and also heard a lot about opening up those platforms. To see at least the first bits already is great. Of course we need to wait what comes out of this all as not much is implemented yet but all these moves look promising. There are also a lot of problems to be solved in front of us but when looking at traffic on the dataportability and DiSo group you can see how active people are these days. For now 2008 looks great to me already!
