MindTouch DekiWiki "Hayes" Live Data Services

Cross Post

This video is longer than the last, but I think you'll agree it’s worth the 20 minutes of your life. Live Data Services is one of the most exciting new features coming in the Hayes release. With Live Data Services DekiWiki's original goals are reaching fruition as a web framework for developing enterprise and social applications. Specifically one can register a webservice with DekiWiki, describe the new service in DekiWiki's services manager control panel, and thereby operate on external data as if it were local or extend DekiWiki with other applications and widgets. DekiWiki is now a social media aggregation platform, easily integrated with other applications and data stores, and very easy to extend with additional functionality.
