"Ubiquity" has been blowing round twitter today so I thought I had better check it out.

I think this is great. It is basically a Mozilla mashup solution. While the service requires Mozilla as a client this is a fairly light weight client so I can see that there will be huge uptake.

If I can use Ubiquity from within a browser based email system )Lotus Notes / Exchange then it has the potential to become a standard.

I wonder about the use of Ubiquity Vs Portal/Mashup sites. Once I have used a Ubiquity service perhaps I want to share this new mashup-ed up content with my colleagues by posting it to a portal site rather than an email so it would be good if there was a web page construct available as well.

I have not read the doco yet but I thought I would get the message out. Not often you see a v0.1 offering.
