Om writes on The Myth, Reality & Future of Web 2.0 in a great article, and also takes a dig at my lack of Indian gastronomic experimentation.
Yahoo and MSN give up your information without a fight, Google fights it. Who do you trust your data with more? Also how would a Web 2.0 company with a much more fragile financial state respond to legal demands from the US Goverment? “We’re going to spend millions fighting the DOJ” seems like a rough way to start a board meeting. Hat tip: Eric Haller.
Dave Hornik asks “What is Web 2.0?” for his podcast to dozens of people you may have heard of. Pretty entertaining, usually.
This conference is really great. Right now Barry Diller is on stage fielding questions and it’s pretty high quality conversation. At the “launchpad” most of the demos were pretty unpolished, but one that stood out was Zimbra, which I blogged a few weeks ago. The best part, as with most conferences, is running into people outside of the sessions.
