Why not?

Mind you, it would not be easy, but there is no reason why it couldn't
be done. Unless, of course, we prematurely lock ourselves/our users
into other solutions/platforms/APIs.

If we didn't do it ourselves, of course, others are starting to do web
services in an open way (see for example mozilla's weave,,, elgg, (sadly defunct) mugshot, and Ubuntu's (quiet) online
services). GNOME, imho, should be looking at supporting those (and
perhaps getting them to work together on common APIs like gdata?)
before supporting standards that (regardless of their patent status)
essentially connect us only to proprietary services.

Luis (who personally would love to see Conduit or something like it
pick up enough momentum, and point at enough Libre services, to become
a central theme of 3.0)
