Mitch Kapor is a legend in the IT world (he’s the guy behind Lotus) and he’s always interested in new models (he’s an investor in FM, for example, which certainly influences my view of the guy). In any case, Mitch is starting another company, Foxmarks, which focuses, in Mitch’s words, “on innovation at the intersection of search and social production.” Richard at ReadWriteWeb has a writeup here. I’m a bit confused, however, if it’s related to this Foxmarks, which lives in a similar vein. I’m pinging Mitch to find out…
Update: Mitch sez:
First we created a Firefox extension called Foxmarks that synchronizes bookmarks. The URL you sent is for the main page of the web site, which happens to be a Wiki.
We used the bookmark corpus we collected to create the proof-of-concept system for the new startup. We will keep building on this, but the extension is separate form the web site we are going to build.
