open micro blogging? whats this? take a look at this: http://openmicroblogging.org/
Identi.ca? a service which uses this open micro blogging stuff? oh yes. you should also look at this:
Montreal, Quebec-based Control Yourself, Inc. today launched Identi.ca, the open microblogging service. Users can post short messages about themselves to Identi.ca, which are then broadcast to friends in their social network using instant messages (IM), RSS feeds, and the Web.
The Gnip API provides notification of activities (events) occurring in a variety of services and, whenever possible, a guid that identifies the activity itself vis a vis the service it was created on. Activity examples include a user “tweet” (twitter), a user “dugg” (digg), a user creating a blog post, etc.
You can leave your polling tasks to Gnip and only consume the data over their API.
