The Internet Clipboard

Ray Ozzie has been talking extensively about the Live Clipboard. It looks like this idea clicked with others. For example, earlier today I found out about Internet Clipboard from Chris Pirillo’s blog. This new service allows you to ‘copy’ and ‘paste’ between computers. After testing Internet Clipboard, it seems like this is a modified TinyURL service with features to access larger amounts of data and password protect the data. Ray Ozzie’s vision seems to be more along the lines of actually being able to transfer data between sites that support Live Clipboard. There are some nice examples of Live Clipboard that clearly illustrate the need for an online clipboard  but somehow I don’t think that Internet Clipboard is the answer.
