KollabFrame - The vision
Imagine a world where computers are everywhere. A world where documents, images, videos, audio files and other content are available to be edited on any device in collaboration with others. Now imagine being able to do this concurrently. Share and remix. Brainstorm ideas. Write books. Role play. Take notes. Code. Create mind maps. Draw. Create music. All as part of a group that makes changes together in real time. This world is not too far from the future and making this happen is what KollabFrame is about.
KollabFrame is a new project that will attempt to pull together the various pieces of technology currently available or in planning and build a framework for collaborative content creation. This framework might end up as another pillar of KDE or as part of one of the existing ones. Where it ends up inside KDE however is not so important. What is important, as Aaron Seigo so aptly put it in his KDE 4.0 release event speech, is that it is about making this technology available to all KDE applications and cooperating with other projects outside KDE to achieve this.
