Socially networked harddrives - Chris Messina, 2006

Chatting with Chris @chrismessina on Twitter surfaced this old post of his, which has some great wording relevant to what we’re building at Fission.

Essentially, any webpage or website becomes a data store and an application, all rolled into one.

I wanted to illustrate the idea of networked harddrives — but that get their data from web services. Looking at it now, if each name had “.app” on the end, these would be a collection of desktop executables.

A plug-out model rather than plug-in – sharing data and capabilities across apps.
