GoingOn will be a network of social networks

Lots of buzz around this week about Marc Canter et al. announcing the GoingOn network, a meta social network that will provide a platform for stitching together existing social network and digital identity systems and standards, or something like that.
JD Lasica interviewed Valerie Cunningham for a better explanation of what’s going to be going on, to mangle Marvin Gaye.
Marc also responds to and clarifies some positive coverage at Dana Blankenhorn’s Moore’s Lore Corante blog.
