11am on "Gears and the Mashup Problem"
Mashups are the most interesting innovation in software development in
decades. Unfortunately, the browser's security model did not
anticipate this development, so mashups are not safe if there is any
confidential information in the page. Since virtually every page has
at least some confidential information in it, this is a big problem.
Google Gears may lead to the solution.
Douglas Crockford is the world's foremost living authority on
the founder of two startups, and was Director of Technology at
