Web 2.3 and Beyond, What’s Really Next?

Chris Heuer, host and event organizer of Web 2point2, has requested that participants write blog posts to facilitate topics for the board to consider for the Main Talks or the “How To” sessions. Here’s another idea: As more and more events spring up and parties become the new business mixers, we can’t help but scream, “the bubble is back.” But, I’d like to learn about what really lays ahead for the new Web. With the barrier to entry so low,…

Tags, Tag Beacons, Naming Conventions

Since Chris Heuer, host and event organizer of Web 2point2, has requested that participants write blog posts to facilitate topics for the board to consider for the Main Talks or the “How To” sessions, I thought I’d keep the ideas flowing. I’d like to see a discussion of new opportunities for Tags outside of Technorati. Greg Narain of BlueWhale Labs and Social Roots and I were speaking about the idea of Tag Beacons recently during the Webguild Web 2.0 event…

From Social Media 2 Corporate Media – Part I

I ran this post over at Social Media Club and felt it relevant to share with you here as well. I’ve also added a few additional pieces to keep it fresh and interesting for those who may follow both blogs.

The event even made TechCrunch today. Thanks Mike! Arrington (along with many other important bloggers) have been both in the spotlight and the hotseat in regards to blog posts and how, why, and when to disclose business…

WebGuild Annual Conference – Ram Schriram Keynote

It was billed as an alternative to O’Reilly’s upcoming Web 2.0 conference in San Francisco. Was it? No. Was it related to Web 2.0? Not really. Was it still useful? Yes. Bambi Francisco and Roland Vogl, Esg. For a “Web 2.0” event however, it had a completely different group than I’m used to seeing. It seemed to mash veteran Silicon Valley professionals with up-and-coming Web 2.0 entrepreneurs. But, that’s OK. It was still, for all intensive purposes, a valuable event;…

October 2006 SF Beta Web 2.0 Mixer

Photo Credit: Beau Liening Grab a bottle of bubbles at your local Longs or RiteAid, get outside and commence blowing. Try to make one very big bubble, gander, marvel at its size, call all of your friends to see it, and then, pop. Pop? That’s so 1.0. Now, do it again…but, be careful…don’t let this one pop. Instead of filling it with air, try injecting a bit of hope and enthusiasm into each blow. Nice work….I can see the beginnings…
