[REBOL] Killer App in REBOL

From: dvydra:orion-it at: 9-Aug-2001 12:11

I would like to invite everyone to brainstorm about a killer application to be written in Rebol, one that would be widely used and easily recognizable. I will start with a suggestion that Yahoo should have a mail client written in Rebol. It should do dynamic caching of email, have the same folders as the web version and obviously support whatever ads they rely on for revenue. It should support offline view/edit of mail. I am not talking about writing a screen-scraper, but actually a server on Yahoos side to talk to a client written in R/View. If Yahoo exposes SOAP services then an independent company can write the client, but the matter of dealing with ads may be sensitive. Any ideas? dv
