There will be three desktop clients through which you conduct your life. Browser wars ("Episode 1" ... or was that 4?) was only the beginning.
* The browser. "Their stuff" -- your lens on the outside world -- discover, read, and transact.
* The messenger. "Our stuff" -- your lens into your social world -- connect and converse.
* The manager. "My stuff" -- your lens onto your own digital artifacts -- search, edit and view.
Look at it from your point of view.
Now look at it from "Their" point of view.
It's useful to do One-Few-Many analysis on this. One-Few-Many publishers reaching One-Few-Many consumers. Skype is mostly One-To-One with some Few-To-Few and One-To-Many aspects.
There's a piece of this puzzle that is missing and that's publishing your profile; A public About Me page. All the portals are focussed on collecting everything you might read in one place. The "My Page". Nobody focusses on the reverse, collecting everything I create in one place *for other people* to read about me.
