PARC :: An Amazing Research & Development Iniative

PARC is an initiative funded//in collaboration with XEROX that develops state of the art technologies in the fields of Web Tools, Physical MetaMaterials, and other super cool new tech.  From what I gather, they research and deploy tools that are way ahead of anyone else in terms of executing things being considered and developed across the Tech industry.

I think Kiffet is my favorite.  It’s like an slash RSS feed slash link aggregator. It has links to totally obscure resources, though…ones that I would have never found otherwise.


To help increase reader engagement and differentiate content, PARC’s “Kiffets” Social Indexing Engine enables news companies to curate Long Tail web content cost-effectively.
