The Open Stack discussed at Internet Identity Workshop

Dare Obasanjo tweets today about why he likes Microsoft Live services and why that means he doesn’t think much of OpenSocial. It seems at least some Microsoftees still think the best way to compete is to talk down the competition, but I guess old habits die slowly.

Here’s a video shot yesterday at Internet Identity Workshop where David Recordon of Six Apart and Kevin Marks of Google attempt to unravel the open standards debate, with the help of Echovar‘s Cliff Gerrish. I’m sure we can find some vendor sports embedded here as well, but for the most part there’s a new spirit of cooperation among the platform players (including Microsoft) as IIW continues to produce progress.
