Taking Intellisense to the Next Level

SystemOne is a --- well, I'm not sure, really. A wiki? A personal information manager? But watch in this screencast as it dynamically updates search results as you add text to the page. This is very cool... ...and it makes me wonder whether we should re-think how we define the curriculum for software engineering. Instead of listing topics, perhaps we should specify a handful of systems that we expect our graduates to be able to build, then work backward to figure out what skills they need. And by "build", I don't just mean "write the Javascript"; I'm including requirements engineering, user interface design, performance analysis, quality assurance, integration --- the whole nine balls of wax.
