A Portal in Your Future

Thursday January 21st, 1999

George Giannukos has for us a link to an interesting piece at News.com regarding portals. The article posits that portals will become more utilitarian, slowly replacing aspects of productivity apps that are currently part of application suites like Office. Curiously enough, Microsoft declined to comment on this story (a first!).

very interesting article. I wonder if there is any thought of an open source (d)html based word processor &/OR office suite? Maybe Netscape/Mozilla could throw MS out of business! :)

Has anyone taken a look at Magicaldesk.com? I think it's probably going toward 'utilitarian portal' status from the 'utilitarian' side, rather than the 'portal.'
