    Does this mean that an affiliate can develop a widget and keep 100% of the commissions?

    Applications will need to be hosted on MySpace servers.
    Chuck...yes - they do intend to allow a developer to maintain 100% revenue. (According to everything i've seen/read/etc...)

    However, the above hosted quote will be a big long term problem, in my opinion.

    I agree. What are they thinking? Not many people are going to be willing to open their database up to external connections. I hope I can upload some sort of wrapper that will access my data via HTTP.

    In any event I'm extremely excited about this and will jump all over it the minute it's released. And with Google's Orkut platform coming out on November 6th I'm going to be one busy app developer.

    Snib,

    Don't forget... these are the same folks that have had the same login problem/errors for several years now. I'm also excited, but with tempered expectations. Their tech solutions never impress me nearly the way Facebook does.

    Yep, and I'm starting to think the reason you need to host with them is they're technically incapable of mimicking Facebook. They're certainly not known for being a technical powerhouse. But that might just work in our favor in terms of harvesting mainstream consumers. I have a hunch their traffic will convert better than Facebook.
