Idea generation #16: Open networking

Dave Winer commented in this post that we will see explosive unbundling of the services that make up social networks. I thing we are seeing signs of that happening now.

Here are some services that are unbundling these social network services:
  1. newsfeeds: friendfeed (bonus reading: bubblegeneration's post on how friendfeed are disrupting facebook's newsfeeds.
  2. widgets/mini-applications: ringside networks
  3. identity: mybloglog (bonus reading on the potential of mybloglog's API)
So, the next question is then what happens with all these unbundled services? What kind of innovative applications can we built that are light-weight, open, and rely on these basic social network 'infrastructure' providers? In the next few posts, I will dig deeper to see what kind of startup opportunities exist when we apply these unbundled social network services to different areas like ecommerce, travel, finance, media et al.
