Web 2point2 – The Interviews

Recently, we attended Web 2point2, an ‘unconference’ driven by participants and based on conversations, not powerpoints. The people who attended the event are the influentials in the Blogosphere and Web 2.0 movement – the folks in the trenches doing the real work, starting up new companies and sharing their understanding of what they learn.

The Sky is Falling 2.0

Google Tops $500 Per Share

Search leader, and start-up gobbler, Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) surpassed the $500 mark for the first time today. This is a significant milestone which only took a little over two years to achieve – making its initial public offering of $85 per share seem like a bargain today. And, if you think about it, it really has been a meteoric rise for the pair of Stanford University graduate students, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, to go from a garage to a…
