Example – EtherCalc

I had other plans for the second post on this blog. Fear not, it is just postponed, not canceled. The reason for this is that, few days ago, a friend of mine +Dusan Jovanovic sent me a link to EtherCalc web spreadsheet. This project is a nice example of how a legacy application (VisiCalc) could be brought to new life on the web platform using node.js. And VisiCalc is epitome of legacy application, but a very important one. It is one of the few that brought computing to the masses and masses to computing. It would be very nice if you could find the time to read the whole page.
