All,

In the most recent 2.0 draft, I've added a new property called
"actions" that re-introduces the notion of "action links". I've
posted a couple things about it on my personal blog:

http://www.chmod777self.com/2013/09/actions-in-activity-streams-20.html
http://www.chmod777self.com/2013/09/actions-in-activity-streams-continued.html

The second link shows a number of interesting use cases.

This ought to be treated as purely experimental at this stage, but the
idea is to bring together a number of separate threads (such as
Opensocial embedded experiences, action links, opengraph actions,
schema.org/Action, etc) and provide a single base. As the use cases in
the second post above illustrate, the approach is quite flexible.

As always, I'd love input/feedback from the community. Is this the
right approach? Is it something that's valuable? Would you implement
this?

You might wanna have a look at Hydra [1]. It's quite similar to what you are
proposing. There's also a W3C community group [2] working on it (still in
summer break though).


Cheers,
Markus
