sxip, Flickr, and New Online Plaforms

Pleasurable dinner/chat last night in Vancouver with Dick Hardt of sxip and Stewart Butterfield of Flickr fame. They are up to very different things, of course, but it is remarkable how many of my recent conversations implacably converge on emerging application platforms. There are interesting tectonic shifts going on again in technology, and I feel like we are all excitedly fumbling around the changed landscape, almost like 1993 all over again.
