paperclipRemember that little guy?

Yes, him. The Microsoft Office Paperclip. Whatever your thoughts were on its decade-long existence — helpful, goofy or other strings of expletives — reserve them for a moment.

Tel Aviv-based Kryon Systems says it has developed a better version called LEO or “Learn, Evolve, Operate,” which not only answers questions but actually carries out the tasks needed to resolve them. The angel-funded startup’s product works on Windows-based applications.

Now this could be helpful if well-designed or it could be a Paperclip capable of Great Evil if not. The company is launching at DEMOfall 09, the technology conference co-produced by VentureBeat, and we’ll be reporting as we learn a bit more.
