New, Big OpenSocial Announcements Coming Tonight?

According to Mike Arrington (I know, I said I wanted to boycott TechCrunch but it’s just so dang hard to avoid! I’ll stick to boycotting Crunchgear for now.), Google is having another “Campfire One” event tonight. The last Campfire One event they announced OpenSocial. It was the OpenSocial team that announced the event, and the biggest bloggers and developers in the industry were all there. Mike Arrington thinks this one is going to be the announcement of “BigTable”, Google’s answer to Amazon SimpleDB.

I think otherwise – see my thoughts at OpensocialNow.com.

  1. Hmmm, I think this Campfire will be all about Google Docs Offline — it's a pretty major step for Google, essentially their first unabashed face-off with Microsoft on Microsoft's own turf (desktop apps). They've been making Docs offline available in increments of Docs' user base since last Thursday, it should be available to all users by Friday this week. And I'm guessing they'll be Campfiring about this and its future extensions. (Gmail offline client?)
