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. In short, the crowd will be largely made up of peers and contemporaries in the resurgence of the Web. Alison McNeill and I were on site…

The Sky is Falling 2.0

Photo Credit: Gary Shaw I lamented over whether or not to write this post, but felt that it was absolutely necessary in order to stop any potential widespread panic after Dave Winer’s post that semi predicts the end of Bubble 2.0. According to Winer, “In the late 90s, we knew the end would come, and we knew what the end would look like — a stock market crash of the dotcom sector. So, if Web 2.0 is a bubble, and…

Let’s STIRR Things Up A Bit – Web 2.0 Event Soars to New Heights, Part I

STIRR has set the bar pretty high, and it has earned its place as the reigning champ for monthly tech/Web 2.0 business events. Note, that I will stop using words such as “mixer” and “networking event” because they cast a horrible misconception on what STIRR is really all about. The secret of STIRR’s success is that its founders, Sanford Barr, Sean Ness, and Dan Arkind carefully screen their invite only (and wait list application) lists in order to fill the…

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…

Social Media Club Forms Working Group to Develop New Standard for Press Release

On the heels of its official launch, Social Media Club (SMC) formed the Media Release Working Group to begin development of the hRelease , a new standard for modernizing the traditional press release for a Web-centric world. The Media Release Working Group will work closely with the Microformats community, while evaluating other technologies such as XPRL, XBRL, and NewsML to establish a standard way of organizing, tagging, distributing, and sharing ‘official’ organizational communications among blogs and other online communities.
