This is the best thing I've written in ages... thanks to Saurier Duval for doing a mash-up of my blog.
Some choice extracts:
"The stats they released today indicate theyíre well on their way to explain them in the Web as a serviceí concept (which is by no means a new regular feature of Web services ìpayloadsî ñ digital objects that are a millionaire already. The $568 per link is just icing on the Web."
[that one's for Mr Barren!]
"Itís been a fantastic 3 days, very very busy and bustling, and hugely enjoyable. Iím buzzing ñ but trying my best to be stable and meeting demand."
"Now, I have other irons in the sequel: Dotcom 2.0."
"I love reading old books about the rising VC interest in Web 2.0 technologies such as ìArchitecture of Participationî and ìcost-effective scalabilityî carry with them a lot of the shoes and the future of what Web 2.0 is that mainstream people will need and want."
Yes, shoes are a fundamental aspect of Web 2.0 that I need to explore much more :-) I haven't even finished reading the mash-up post yet, but it's brilliant stuff.
p.s. yes, this is kind of a slow news day on R/WW. It's my last day in Silicon Valley (for a while), so humor me...
