Visiting Box.net

Box.net is a cool way to store your files online. I did two interviews. One with my professional camera that’ll be up in a week and another I streamed live with my cell phone of the coolest feature that Box.net’s CEO, Aaron Levie, showed me that lets Box.net integrate into other services, like from Zoho, so a document could open automatically into Zoho. Why is this important? Because it shows that the Office 2.0 world is maturing and is starting to become a system all of its own that can bring new capabilities that Microsoft’s Office is going to resist adding. Imagine a Word document opening in Zoho. I doubt that’ll ever happen. Here’s another video where I met Aaron and you see their office. They didn’t believe it was live. I showed them it was and they said it was massively cool.

Anyway, I’m playing around with the cell phone streaming via Qik. The audio is scratchy, but one thing I learned while walking around Stanford Mall today is that people can write to my cell phone’s screen live. That’s an awesome feature and will let me do interactive stuff.

Oh, and what was this employee from Mogulus doing in my car today? A live CES series of shows in the planning!

  1. With “Web is the platform” and such combinations of services as box.net and zoho – do we really need fancy OS’s anymore? (even Mac OS – ‘sob)

  3. Aaron and the Box.net crew have done a great job. I work for Myxer and we are very pleased to be one of the integrated Open Box services, enabling Box.net users to instantly and easily create custom ringtones and mobile wallpapers from MP3′s and images they have stored on Box.net. Fun stuff!

  5. Robert, the direct link to your Qik profile can be found here: http://qik.com/scobleizer

    That page will update to show whatever your newest stream is, with live streams taking over the display like the home page does, and it supports live chat as well; if your phone is online with Qik, it’ll show in the video window, and people can text you through that.

    cheers!
