     Microsoft Chief Technology Officer Ray Ozzie on Tuesday unveiled technology he called "Live Clipboard" for connecting Web sites and desktop applications using a combination of RSS feeds, other XML, and the humble desktop clipboard.

    The technology allows Web developers to write simple code that puts buttons on Web pages that copy information to the desktop clipboard, and then paste the information to desktop applications or other Web pages.

    The tools were designed to be as simple as the desktop clipboard itself, said Ozzie. "If you walk out of here today, and say, 'That wasn't such a big deal, then I will have done my job,'" Ozzie quipped to the audience during his keynote address at the O'Reilly Emerging Technology Conference here.

    No, you're not wrong (congrats Wink).

    What significant about this is that Microsoft is announcing a standard schema for encapsulating the clipboard information and passing it amongst other websites and desktop applications.

    Not to link-wh*re (well, maybe...), but I started a thread about this the other night with a link to Ozzie's blog which includes illustrative screencasts and a live demo.

    EDIT: What's up with the editor?! I had to edit this half a dozen times before the formating/link worked as I wanted...

    It seems that the format that Microsoft invented is little more than a tag to wrap formats invented by others (the micro-format community).

    Just look into Your "Security Crystal Ball" and see what's going to happen with this one...
