Just noted Loic on Twitter posted a link to twitterposter : it's just about the main users of twitter. I'm surprised about this long tail thing : are we all in there ? with that little followers ? and everyone else having only a few ? surprising...
And just joined another web 2.0 extravangaza. Very amusing, but it feels like a small world among friends, with a twist of Plazes: it misses however the profile from Linkedin (for the CV, jobs, contact updates), the videos and multimedia elements from other web services, chat features such as twitter...
The best thing since sliced bread ? a mix between the ultra simple blog platform and the IM features of a large scale social network. Very amusing.
It should integrate immediately with social networks such as linkedin, xing and the like...
For your mac, you can't live without Twitterrific. And Twittervision is here. And register on twitter here.
To get the best experience of the video, press the rectangle for full screen. There's a real suprise in there at some point :D
I know we have tried to address the definition of what the web 2.0 means. Some people tend to use a 1. technological definition (AJAX and so on). 2. Others use the social component of the application and mix with the first definition to create mash-ups. 3. others finally talk about user generated content. Not an easy task, and depending who you talk to, or what you are talking about, you can use any of these definitions. I recently wrote an article on the topic for the alumni association of French engineering school, Centrale Paris. It should be published in the upcoming months in a special issue (Thanks to O. ).
My point today is that I myself don’t really know what definition to use. I like of course David Hornik’s definition of Triple-A. But indeed when you have a look at www.netvibes.com: it’s so web 2.0, you just know it. No definition required. Or www.wikio.fr, so web 2.0 again. Tariq mentionned www.MusicMe.com tonight, and I thought, oh, trying to be web 2.0 also ? (I had actually never looked at the site, although it’s CEO Freddy Mini had been on vpod.already, and that Pascal Mercier has mentionned the services gazillions of times…).
So the usual question: what companies are really web 2.0 in Europe these days ? Pierre Chappaz tried the quiz the other day, but I tend to think that too many people registered saying they were a web 2.0 company without much justification. Please reply in the comments, with a justification of why you think this or that company IN EUROPE, is part of the movement… or not.
Back from Las Vegas, I was wondering whether I should put up the footage of the keynotes I filmed. They were public performances, in front of tons of journalists, photographers, and cameras. Now that I spotted that videos of keynotes were up on cnet’s news.com, I guess there’s no reason not to publish my own footage (I'll take it down of coruse if I'm given a good reason to do so).
So here’s Yahoo’s CEO Terry Semel Keynote.
