Inbreeding – The Valley Style

So Marc Andreessen joins the Board of Facebook.  (Advance note of jealousy towards Mark Zuckerberg for getting someone of Marc’s stature.  Kudos).

What I find surprising is will there be any input from Marc on FB’s technical strategy?  I am specifically concerned about Marc’s Ning using OpenSocial and FB using its own FB API.  Will we see a merging of the two?  Surely it would be stupid (a quality I possess in abundance) to think FB would abandon FB API in favour of Ning for better tapping into Ning and its countless social networks hosted within.  However one cannot help see the allure in a wrapper to FB API to be OpenSocial compatible?

Or is this issue too puny and insignificant to deserve a mention?
