Yesturday walking through the exhibit hall at SXSW the AOL Principle Product Managerd Micheal Cummins came up to me and said he had to show me this new OpenID enabled app – Ficlets.
It is a really cool idea – you get to start a story by writing a ficlet and other people get to continue it. The first thing that came to my mind was the fact that you could end up with collaboratively created Choose your own Adventure style stories.
The other thing that this makes clear is that someone inside AOL has read the Innovators Dilemma/solution and is supporting a creative culture within the company. With this I look forward to seeing what other cool apps/features emerged and how they can play in cultivating an thriving OpenID ecology.
