So [[http://kottke.og]] writes about [[http://www.kottke.org/05/08/googleos-webos|the Google WebOS]]. Nice article.
If you recall, I had blogged about this in an earlier post, [[http://floatingsun.net/blog/2005/05/05/37/|the future of Google]].
Kottke.org does a good job of summarizing the recent developments (Konfabulator, GDS, Web 2.0, AJAX) and tying them all together into a big coherent picture.
I guess I should start putting in some more time into my posts :-)
Incidentally, [[http://www.cs.ucsd.edu/~vahdat/|Amin's]] thesis was on [[http://www.cs.ucsd.edu/~vahdat/papers/hpdc98.ps|WebOS]] too — the idea was close (operating system services over wide area networks), but the implementation was quite different.
