Hi all,

really interesting read on G+ about how Google fails to be a platform:
https://plus.google.com/112678702228711889851/posts/eVeouesvaVX - this
is long, but IMO worth reading. For me, this is raising the question
of how this applies to OKF and CKAN in particular: everything we do is
platformish, yet little is accessible API-wise - and I think for CKAN
we are still in need of the clear killer app (issues, if you ask me).

Anyway: enjoy the article.
