Using Live Clipboard


Steve Farrell sent me an example of using Ray Ozzie's Live Clipboard. Ray's talk from ETech 2006 went up last week at IT Conversations--it's worth listening to so you understand what Ray's doing. Steve is a proponent of microtemplates. The Web site says that the "goal of microtemplates is to make it as easy to publish dynamic information as it is to publish static information." They're complementary to microformats, one of the staples of Ray's Live Clipboard.

I'm just learning about microtemplates, but they seem like a great way to avoid long chunks of JavaScript that do nothing but format HTML strings. Steve's Live Clipboard example, naturally, makes use of them. Go ahead and give it a try--I had seen Ray do it at ETech, but it was kind of fun to give it a go.
