I made a joke at the beginning of this year, at the AIIA lunch in February I think, that we were heading for the Time of O. The 90’s were the “E‘s”. As in eCommerce, eMail, and electronic services. Then came the “I’s” – iPod, iGoogle, iwhatever. When I was asked what the O was for, I said Ontological. Well, it was the best I could come up with.
Of course, it’s Open. As in OpenSocial.
So quick, grab all the oWords or OpenWords domains. OpenFriends, OpenProfile, oFriends.
Over it Already.
