Most of you have heard me talk about Open Source Code, and the fascination that I have with Open Source Marketing.

Now, Ning .. the start-up co-founded by Marc Andreessen (the guy who co-founded Netscape) has launched a application playground. They describe Ning this way

Ning is a free online service (or, as we like to call it, a Playground) for building and using social applications.
Social apps are web applications that enable anyone to match, transact, and communicate with other people.

I think it’s an excellent example of Web 2, (described here by Tim O’Reilly), and something that will accelerate the social network, and sharing phenomenon.

I have applied for a Developer Account and will hopefully gather some more experience with Ning when that comes through. Stay tuned.
