O'Reilly Radar on Gnip

As I mentioned last week, Gnip looks to be at least of tangential interest to use in museum tech, whether because we may be involved in social software, or as a model for addressing the sort of data interchange problems we face (though of course there are alternative approaches). Jim Stodgill has written an article on O'Reilly Radar of which I understand about 30%, but which looks at how Gnip compares to enterprise service bus, in the problems it's tackling and the solution it offers. It's worth a read.

Thanks for the follow-up to your previous post and the continuing kind words.

I'd love to hear about what you're researching in regards to using social sites to assist in museum sustainability. Don't hesitate to reach out to eric@marcoullier.com
