Having worked heavily with the Open Market’s Content Server at another organization (prior and during its transition to FatWire), I was a bit dismayed to hear FatWire rushing to be at the head of the Social stampede. Often this type of feature set is designed to be able to check off a box on an evaluators checklist, but that doesn’t seem to be the case in this instance. I’ve yet to play with it first hand, but the offering seems to be a one-stop-shop should your site need an integrated social solution.
Using Google’s OpenSocial API standard for gadget creation, FatWire has begun realizing the true potential in maximally modular application and social design in its Gadget Server feature. This has the potential to be an excellent combination of proprietary and open development and display methodologies. Look for great things to come from those that take an innovative approach utilizing this type of architecture.
