  2. Atom feeds with ActivityStreams, Portable Contacts, Threads extensions for the actual content

  3. PubSubHubbub for subscribing to Atom feeds

  4. Salmon for delivering certain items from the Atom feeds to interested parties such as the mentioned user, author of the status being replied to, person being followed, etc

https://facebook.com/

Open data – A small YES and many many NO's the is a obscured link were you can download a lot of data that facebook holds about you it's a SMALL YES. But all the interlinking and meta data that is used is hidden and for sale to the higist bidders, a BIG NO.

Open source – NO open licences for the data, its privatised. Some of the backed projects are opensource but not in a really socially useful way – the big project is CLOSED SOURCE.

Open “industrial” standardsthey use um and pervert um to CLOSED

Open process – this is very much CLOSED

So 1/4 of a open for data and 1/4 of a open for source that make 1/2 a open.

Bronze 2 opens

Facebook is not a 4opens project.

This is the first stage of the Open Blogging Network. Currently you have to have a blog on the OMN server, but a bit of programming will enable any blog (vier a RSS feed) to be a part of the network.

Don't be a spectator, be part of the conversation. If you post to your blog on your public page, it is automatically syndicated out to twitter, facebook, and any sites that embed the news aggregator. Just add the relevant tag when you publish (such as frontpage, grassroots, globalviews, friendlyfire, plugandplay, headmix).
