This week’s episode of This Week in Google starts off with 30 minutes or so of the panel talking with [App.net’s](http://app.net) Dalton Caldwell. The interview is very insightful as to App.net’s future. I was unaware of Mr. Caldwell’s vision that App.net would be infrastructure focused (i.e. they’ll be an “API company.”) In fact, he was torn about even producing the [alpha.app.net](http://alpha.app.net) website because he wanted third-party clients to handle that and he did not want people to think he was simply making a Twitter clone. The whole interview is quite good and definitely worth a listen if you are interested in App.net or the social web.
