The XPages Demos I want to see...

I think that the best way to showcase the capabilities of a platform is to shock people, and make them consider that the technology addresses needs previously considered out of scope or -- quite frankly -- where the technology wasn't even considered as a viable option in the first place.
This is why I loved TSAzr. It showed that XPages and thus IBM Lotus Domino could be employed to handle Web Services requests and house data for mobile device fat apps.
It shows the potential of the platform in a unique and interesting way.
It shows that, if properly motivated, platform developers can extend the technology to an entirely new market, and even monetize that investment.
It shows that the platform has a life far-beyond the enterprise, and it is demos that showcase that application that I would love to see.
I think we need more demos like that. Demos that make people reconsider the platform and change their perceptions of what it can do... and more importantly, what it can be employed to do.
With that, I plan on putting together some demos of Domino and XPages that -- I'll put it this way -- leverage the capabilities of the platform and use the technology in alternative ways.
