Ray Ozzie’s web clipboard

At first, you’d think it has to be some terrible ActiveX hack, but it’s not — it’s a hidden text field and a bit of JavaScript that moves the data around.

Dave if that was the case then why is there a little clipboard application running in the tray, in the bottom of the screen cast?

Ok so apparently it does work? Great, so I wonder what that little app was running in the tray with the “Scissors” icon?

Apparently that little tray app that was running in the screencast demo is a clipboard bridge that takes the Micro-xml format and converts it to a native format.

I think Microsoft and (Ray Ozzie) deserves some kudos for this, it’s an excellent idea. Check out the Screencast and the Demo page.
