The team at NearVerse have been pioneering the notion of “Spaces” - a virtual digital hangout to share things with people nearby. From this latest Blog post, it looks like they may be now planning to make Spaces available to third parties as a service, so that anyone could embed Space-style functionality in to their own offerings (think: spaces as a service). I think this is a smart move, and could really broaden the awareness and uptake of the LoKast platform. We’ve had a similar approach with LocalSocial (in our case, Proximity as a Service), for a while, and are doing a major revision to that platform now to roll in some of the new things we’ve done for our retail service.  Stay tuned.  (via LoKast Spaces for all | LoKast)
