Closed/Private wins in the end

I was there for the birth of the ClosedPrivate Initiative. Anne Zelenka has the full story, well as much as she can disclose. I'm thinking she might be a tad in the dark:

Facebook moved first with the F8 platform. Then Google (GOOG) and a coalition of other social networks responded with OpenSocial. Now, at today’s Defrag conference, semantic web startup AdaptiveBlue has announced ClosedPrivate, the latest strike in the worldwide social applet war. CEO and founder Alex Iskold apparently instigated the ClosedPrivate effort in a closed and private elevator meeting before continental breakfast on the fourth floor of the Hyatt Regency.

I wish I could tell you more.
