Ray Ozzie has shown a preview of some a new open technology Live Clipboard his team at Microsoft has developed for cutting and pasting structured data between web (and desktop) applications.
It is really cool in both it’s simplicity and also that Microsoft are going to be releasing it on a creative commons like license.
So what I would like to know is who will be the first to have a Rails plugin or gem available? Unfortunately I have no time to start playing with it until Saturday and I guess that some bright spark will have released one by then.
For more on the technical background including source code see the Live Clipboard Technical Introduction .
