Prior Art

The most interesting thing to come out of this whole Eolas disaster could well turn out to be Ray Ozzie’s description of how Lotus Notes was demonstrating many of the funamental abilities of today’s browsers, including dynamic application embedding remarkably similar to that covered back in the patent, way back in 1993. The patent was filed in 1994. Prior art? We can only hope.
