I'm thinking we should brainstorm one final round of invited talks and
discussions to go through January and up till  end of February. Just
to be clear, that leaves us with up to about 7 invited talks. Then, we
need to really focus on the final report for March, which I think
(given the use-cases, etc. etc. we should be able to piece together
just fine!).

I'm just brain-storming topics which we did not get to before
Christmas break. I'd like people to add names and topics. Off the top
of my head:

1) WRAP, OAuth, and SSL -> Probably inviting Eran Hammer-Lahav back,
Luke Shepard from Facebook (who implemented WRAP in Javascript), and
the editors of WRAP (Dick Hardt, Tom Allen) and some of them from
OAuth (Ben Laurie comes to mind...)

2) Work on a common terminology. I know some of our Social Web XG
membershave been working on this, so I'd like to devote a telecon to
it ASAP.

3) XMPP, Google Wave, Opera Unite (which doesn't use XMPP, but maybe
they can explain why), and other upcoming social software built on
XMPP. I'm
sure Peter St. Andre would be happy to weigh in, and I can e-mail
folks from Opera and Google, but again, if people have personal
contacts here now is the time to spread them.

4) OpenSocial, W3C Widgets, and Facebook Developer Platform - this
might want to be split into two telecons. There's been quite a few
e-mails about this, but we should probably just set a date and *do*
it.

5) OpenID 2.0 - Realizing we never had a proper telecon about OpenID
2.0, in particular it's attribute exchange mechanism. Again, the usual
cast of suspects - Chris Messina, David Recordon, Tom Allen... and the
inevitable question, will there be an OpenID 3.0?

6) Micropayments - I think the OpenID foundation has a WG on this
topic, and I know Doug Schepers (W3C) has been thinking about this.
Not sure who else, but it should be part of the final report.

7) OpenMicroblogging and Twitter - We can invite someone from Twitter
and really sit down and compare OMB to Twitter's APIs.

8) Relationship between OWF and W3C - we need to have a discussion of
some proposal for some kind of mutually beneficial relationship.

    OK, feel free to e-mail the whole list...I'd like to really like
to decide this ASAP, time is running short!

                 cheers,
                   harry
