Ray Ozzie made an extraordinary demo of Live Clipboard in ETech. He illustrated a very simple concept to enable users to pass data between web applications and the PC, by using the clipboard! All this involves only defining the live clipboard data format and simple enhancement to the applications.
He reminded us the clipboard was a great GUI innovation that allows transfer of data between multiple applications. This is also a glimpse of the power of the semantic web.
