Sxipper 3.0 demo

At the November Denver/Boulder New Tech Meetup Dick Hardt demo’d a prototype of sxipper 3.0.

Sxipper leverages your social graph (Facebook, LinkedIn, etc), and shows how it ties in to the larger web in general. For example, he showed how you might browse to a company’s site, and skipper will call out to you that someone in your graph (friend or friend of friend) is somehow connected to the site. Very cool concept.

Seeing Dick also reminded me of seeing his Identity 2.0 presentation at OSCON’05—one of the best presentations I’ve ever seen, in terms of his style. Perhaps dated now, but worth checking out.
