Slides for OpenSocial and App Engine talk at FZI in Karlsruhe

July 1st, 2008 · 3 Comments

Yesterday I gave a talk about OpenSocial and Google App Engine at FZI in Karlsruhe.

The room was packed, 100 people, who asked many interesting questions ranging from business models to technical aspects of OpenSocial and App Engine. FZI has a very strong computer science research program (they have many PhDs who stay there to do research), and Stefan Tai is creating a new cloud computing program. I hope he can collaborate with Chris Bisciglia, from the Google Code University program, and IBM, to replicate in Karlsruhe what they did at the university of Washington.

Markus Klems who studies with Stefan created excellent slides to explain how to create an OpenSocial application using Google App Engine. It seems like the fact that I mentioned his slides in my preso generated a P@ effect on his blog traffic:-)

Thanks to the FZI team for inviting me: we have a lot of interest in common, I hope this is the beginning of a long friendship.

Here are my slides from yesterday.

    I believe it’s quite possible that Google’s best chance in its competition with facebook for the social web and the content of the user’s “social graph”… as well as establishing itself in the forefront of another world changing capability… is to become the player that understands and builds the secure structure for “the Individually-controlled / Commons-dedicated Account. This concept arose out of a search to resolve problems inherent since the birth of agriculture… the disconnection between the social network and the social organism. I believe this approach is important and provides insight into other problems as well.
    Unfortunately, it’s not a one-man operation… especially a very poor one.
