Salmon Protocol – Unifying the Conversations

Salmon has come up quite a bit recently, and rightly so, with the talk around Google Buzz. I first heard about it on This Week in Google ep 29, which has some great discussion around Google Buzz from @jyri and @kevinmarks, and it came to mind again today with @scobleizer’s blog post; (Coming soon: the disruptive molecular age of information) so I thought I may as well embed this ridiculously simple slideshow that explains exactly what Salmon is.  
As updates and content flow in real time around the Web, conversations around the content are becoming increasingly fragmented into individual silos.  Salmon aims to define a standard protocol for comments and annotations to swim upstream to original update sources — and spawn more commentary in a virtuous cycle.  It’s open, decentralized, abuse resistant, and user centric.
