Subject Re: OO.o and web widgets

<IBM-Hat>I can say that we're not currently doing OpenSocial in Symphony 
desktop, though it considered by us to be a strategic standard.  We've 
done some conceptional work on how OpenSocial could be used in the context 
of editors.  There are some very cool things that could be done in this 
area.
</IBM-Hat>

My main point in terms of the Apache OpenOffice proposal is that OOo 
currently has its own extensibility mechanism, but it has a steeper 
learning curve..  It is beneficial if it could be extended in a 
standards-based way, since that enables greater reuse, obviously reuse of 
existing OpenSocial gadgets,  but also greater reuse of domain knowledge 
and skills that the developer has.   In other words, extensibility is 
good, but standards-based extensibility is golden.
