Broadband Mechanics is a digital lifestyle aggregation company whose work is based on open standards. Their principal service, People Aggregator, is a social networking community based on the notion that larger networks are pools of smaller disparate networks. Rather than one social networking site with 10 million users, they hope to create thousands of smaller groupings of 25 to 150 users who actively network with one another, but who can easily interact with and share their information with other similar networks.
In this presentation at the Mesh Forum conference, Marc Senasac, Broadband Mechanic’s VP of Art Direction, discusses their People Aggregator project, and how they hope to usher in the era of Portal 2.0, where social network sites and structured blogging content can be linked together and managed from a central point, using open source, federated identity standards.
