I am following the coverage of f8, and I find myself thinking that what Facebook is setting out to create is the most significant development on the internet since Google. An open platform, supported by its own markup language (modified HTML) and open-source programming toolset (thrift), overlayed on the most loyal user base, is immensely valuable.
Good coverage by Mashable, TechCrunch and GigaOm.

One thought on “Facebook keeps disrupting”
I’m keeping a watch on what Facebook is doing, too. Their platform has been getting a lot of press recently, and if they keep the clean interface and user-centric focus, I don’t see why the foray into a ‘social operating’ system would not work. It’s an interesting move for the concept of ‘social’: from a personal-time towards work-time concept.
