the web desktop

web desktop. A nice buzzword that fits into our semantic desktop thinking. Actually, the semantic desktop was called semantic web desktop on the first run.

Clearly the HTTP end-points on desktop applications would be useful to invoke an arbitrary set of methods on each application. I envision a system in which we can remotely manipulate desktop applications through HTTP. The same idea that I pitched a few years ago on top of CORBA.

thats something Sven Schwarz and me are talking about since 2004. So we have to talk more about it!
