Who knew that NASDAQ developers could do cool stuff? (That’s the stock market in the USA where lots of tech companies are listed). Check out their new app, shipping soon, that lets investors “replay” the market and make sure they are getting a fair price.
Think you know that AOL can’t innovate or do anything cool? Check this video out where they show off a bunch of cool stuff. Including XDrive, file sharing, but what really impressed me was the top 100 videos application, which started at about 6 minutes into the video.
Kevin Lynch, Adobe’s CTO, asks the crowd at the Adobe Engage event yesterday an interesting question: how is the Web screwed up? People from across the industry answer in the video.
How would you answer it?
My answer? There are too many silos that don’t know about each other. Does Upcoming.org know about Flickr? Barely. Does it know about Yelp? No. How about Facebook. Nope. MySpace? Nope. YouTube? Nope. Does it gather my social network off of Orkut? Nope. Does it talk to Dopplr? Nope. How about other Web services? Nope.
Until we fix that the Web is screwed up.
