Today Tom Malloy was in bangalore campus. He talked about two tribes in world – document and application. Currently they are two and separate. It is when “document” does what it is supposed to do that is store data and behave like an “application” they become “intelligent document“. They could have been named intelligent application also. And “intelligent document” and “rich internet applications” could be one and the same in coming years with boundaries diminishing. Future might belong to intelligent documents with low memory footprints. Who knows how history unfolds and Adobe has been witness to some of these turns.
