From the often frozen tundra of Saskatoon, it appears that the fellows at Vendasta are close to unleashing their creation.
It’s been under wraps for awhile now, and we still don’t quite know what they are up to.
We do know they are looking for a “Social Application Developer” saying, “We will be starting with the development of a Facebook application and will then proceed onto Open Social.”
From John Fothergill, Vendasta EVP of Product Management, on the fabulously named Motherfathergill’s blog comes this tidbit:
None-the-less I decided to attend (the Google I/O conference) because so many sessions were focused on OpenSocial and social networking containers and this was the exact type of research we needed for our web 2.0 start-up MyFrontSteps.
Brendan King also recently attended a Graphing Social Patterns East conference in D.C.
Obviously they are working on a social networking play. It’s a crowded space, but I suppose there is always room for more. All depends on what new twist they can bring. In a Common Craft-ish style video they give a few more hints….
Sounds like it may be able to pull various social networks into one spot. THAT could prove quite useful. It will be interesting to see what comes out. Soon, I suspect….
These guys are all pretty innovative thinkers. Hang on…
