Embedding content on Oracle Mix: What would you want to share?
By tbonnema on Feb 02, 2009
One of the things a lot of people have asked for on Oracle Mix is the ability to somehow share and discuss content (e.g. videos, presentations, documents etc.).
While we won't be able to add file upload anytime soon, we're looking into enabling content embedding.
This morning, we had a first conference call with our colleagues from Legal, whose job it is to make sure that everything we do on Mix complies with Oracle policy and regulations. To be sure, there's a lot of things that need to be considered before allowing this kind of web 2.0 collaboration. To name a few:
- Security: risks of embedding malicious code
- Content: risks of copyright or SEC violations
- Brand: risks of being associated with unofficial or non-Oracle content
As we're preparing some mockups of what this new feature could look like, here's what's on our list so far in terms of services we'd like to support:
- Video: Youtube
- Presentations: Slideshare
- Images: Flickr
- PDFs and other documents: to be determined
Which content types would you like to embed on Oracle Mix? Let us know in the comments. Thanks!
