At the Netscape parking lot

Maybe social bookmarkers (and the like) will be the new stars in Web 2.0. As a good contribution to the discussion about paid peers in a community see Nicholas Carr's blog post.

Web 2.0 And Business 1.9

I think even in the 2.0 ages the business has something 1.x-ish.
Maybe I'm wrong. But I think that even Chad Hurley has said not to do he will sell his money-burning-factory when someone comes with enough money.

(Addendum: I've chosen the wrong words. I didn't want to say that Ohad has no experience with the hard SOA-legacy-stuff. I just wanted to say that the podcast is not about it. Sorry!)

Gizwizs In Space

Even in the future it will be a good advise to have some clothes to throw away in your package.

The Daily Giz Wiz Dick DeBartolo has disclosed his awesome strategy to get place for gadgets in his luggage. He pick up old clothes and throw them away on the journey. Great!
