Writing OpenSocial code just got easier: introducing the OpenSocial Dev App

Today, I'm happy to announce the OpenSocial Dev App: a tool that lets you prototype and debug JavaScript code against a live container environment.

Sites I have joined?


I cannot find the links to the Ning Networks that I had joined.
