New things i’m looking at

With all the web2.0 stuff going on its easy to get carried away with all the products out there. Here’s what i use most often

Social bookmarking – delicious, 2collab

Social networking – LinkedIn (My profile)

Social annotation – Diigo (dont use this as much as the other though)

Other sites i visit every once a while YouTube, Digg, StumbleUpon, Wikipedia, Flickr, among many others that dont come to mind right away. Haven’t been hooked on to MySpace or Facebook thus far.

I love it that people can get pretty much create content, share it, rate it, etc. I love that the internet has been democratized… i wonder why i didn’t think about it 🙂

Seriously though when i worked at iWidgets back in 2000, we built applications like journals, calendars, file cabinets, address books, etc. People could create an instance of the app, put their information in, share it with their friends and friends could share their information, etc. Sounds close to what’s going on these days but… if only the company could have survived the crash… i would’ve had somebody else write my blog for me 🙂

The questions are how soon will all this be adopted by the world. It seems to me that most of the users are either web savvy folks, IT guys and the younger generation. How many of these products come out before there are way too many out there and we have another crash? What is the limit of possibilities for social networking? It certainly appears to be adding value to my life. What’s the next big web 2.0 idea?

OOHHHH!!!! by the way. If you’re wondering… here’s something about web3.0. Bring on the hype…
