In under 5 minutes, a few quick notes on questions I was asked and general feedback on the talk.
Someone asked me if I’m involved in the project (ie contributor etc). I think the talk gave that impression too much, like I’m an evangelist :). Doesn’t help that I had a mail gadget open in the demo and it’s full of opensocial mailing list stuff because I once subscribed there from my gmail account, which I basically don’t use!
Bertrand commented on REST and asked me how it works with XML and JSON. I explained limitations wrt graceful degradation ie the way forms don’t produce XML, and the way every 3rd party JSON call is GET.
Question on how this works with mobiles (limited bandwidth, sometimes offline)
Dragos asked about other standards/frameworks. I agree, need to look more at others.
Question about how it works with reverse ajax (ie comet / http-streaming)
Query about “write once, run many” – is it realistic?
OAuth – difficult on mobiles
