I was waiting for the LeWeb, not for the conference as such but for the Ripplerap TiddlyWiki mod. The tiddly hack works as a simple wiki based notes taker offline. When there is connection to the Internet/Intranet, it collects notes from other users and makes it available.
Let me be a bit unfair to the devl team now. I see there is a lot of ConfusedOfCalcutta in this piece of software – the good old Bloomberg chat wine in new tiddly micro bottle. His open-the-inbox-for-everyone-to-see has resulted in this new monster. And because it is from the stable of BT, you can also make a call! A through confusion on ‘Because of Effect’. I casually tested it, I did get the call to my mobile but got hung up before I was able to further test it. The fact that the call got initiated itself is interesting.
The simplicity of Tiddlywiki, with the versatility of BT API access is indication of the mashing era just round the corner. I was surprised to find that the Mojo API plugin was only 2KB and it was just a few lines(~60) of code. I was disappointed to find that it was proxy and server based. It is not making REST calls directly as I was eagerly anticipating.
