Excited about Facebook acquiring Parakey

Parakey is fascinating by itself (read this via Spectrum online)… but now it is in the hands of Facebook (via Tech Crunch). Where is this whole thing going? At a minimum Facebook is going to improve ease of use for Facebookers by having an online operating system that turns your computer into a bit of a remote server…. but at a maximum we could have something entirely revolutionary.

Imagine the convenience of an online operating system. The convenience should create a content boost that may be more like a “fat tail” than a “long tail”. Also, those folks developing online apps may need to start considering the possibilities of a richer online operating system. It is pretty intense to think that the major platforms we are working towards could rapidly shift by the convenience of a super browser.

Also, Parakey is intended to be open source (via Matt). Don’t know if the folks wanting to make money will let it stay that way… but it should be very open to collaboration.

It is too early to tell if this is a “Cheese Mover”. But I have my eye on it.
