Birds of a Flock

Flock LogoFlock came, and was more jeered than cheered.

Here is a comment by someone that aptly summarize what I wanted to say about Flock-

“If Flock is the poster child for Web 2.0 then I have got to be honest, I am disappointed! It seems a lot of window dressing on top of a normal browser (FF).

FWIW, I think Flock is more like Web 1.1a SP1 than Web 2.0.”

Indeed, integrating, Flickr, RSS feeds in a browser itself is a good beginning, not the end of the road. Social bookmarking is much wider concept that most people think it is. Bookmarking isn’t limited to the web. The web is only part of the larger picture. There is whole lot of content lying on the millions of desktops. Then there is Google Print, trying to solve the problem of lack of online content by the same ‘brute force way'(TM) it always does (Just add your C:\ Drive twice in the Google Desktop Search, it’ll index it twice).
