Sometimes the best inventions are re-inventions

Mon 21 Nov 2005, 02:47 PM

Ray Ozzie has started a new blog, and one of his first entries is a compelling one... why not re-invent the Notes replication wheel for RSS?  He refers to the concept as Really Simple Sharing, but he admits immediately that he is taking the idea behind Notes replication and using it for something different.  I have some uses for the concept he comes up with myself, and will see about implementing it for my purposes, but I also want to emphasize that this is often the way of the world.  Taking a really cool idea and then reapplying it to other situations is a great way to look at things differently. You often see filmmakers and artists who discover a new technique and then continually find new and creative ways to apply it to different situations.  It's good to see Ray Ozzie taking this approach.  I wonder what similar re-inventions he has up his sleeve that may not be shared so publicly.

Thanks, Volker, for the story.
