Permanent Redirect

I finally decided to get a host of my own. I setup a blog at www.starkravingfinkle.org. Blogger has been a great experience for me and I would recommend it to anyone. I just wanted more control and space for doing my own thing.

I am updating the FeedBurner feed, so anyone actually subscribed should get updated without any problems.

Live Clipboard & Open Laszlo

Two really cool announcements this week: Ray Ozzie's Live Clipboard concept and Open Laszlo running on DHTML. I see both announcements having long term effects.

Live Clipboard is just so simple and useful, it has to get adopted, standardized and built into any serious web and non-web applications. That's right, desktop applications and OS shells should also support Live Clipboard. Users will love it. Moving data between web and desktop applications should be as simple as copy/paste.

Applications built using Open Laszlo can now be run using Flash or DHTML runtimes. So those Laszlo guys were serious after all. They have a demo running on both runtimes. Very nice. This goes a long way toward platform and runtime independence. A trend I'd like to see continue. Maybe a XUL based runtime could happen too.
