Opera: Unite



Opera has announced a new free service for online collaboration and Web 2 communities.

Opera: Unite

It's still in development but this could be an interesting way for Opera to distinguish themselves from other people.

I have already used it today to distribute some lesson notes to a student as an experiment. Once I sorted out my firewall security it worked as advertised.

How long, do you think, before Microsoft buys a version of the same thing, with a few bugs in it? Not as an improvement so much as a way to kick Opera?

You really ought to check out Google Wave too as this is a new way of doing things too.

Personally, I am not sure I want people coming through my firewall onto my laptop. I rather selectively publish to my DMZ and host collaborative tools there where I can assure measures of separation between personal and business data.
