The Long Tail Opportunity



The Long Tail is widely discussed (see e.g. Rough Type). But no one sees the real opportunity in it.


(I'm about to relocate this blog to Typepad [feed]. In the next weeks all posts will be posted on both blogs. After that this blog will be put to sleep. The permalinks will stay.)

The Latest Judgment




The Web 2.0 trend might lead into a dead-end (like Tom Foremski posted).
But after you've ended dead it may give you some reasonable arguments before the Latest Judgment.

It's Not Over


As Marshall Kirkpatrick (TechCrunch) and James Yu reported has Digg forced DiggGames.com to cease using Digg in its name. DiggGames.com moved to games1.org.
I wonder why no one has "1" trademarked.

Every Age Has Its Own Jobs


After SOA is available for Dummies (see Steve Hamms blog post) we're all looking forward to even more SOA-VPs, -Managers, ... and the like. I'm curious how long it will take until they will face the same destiny as the e-Business-Incubators from the end of the last millenium.

0.0 + 0.0 = 2.0

Paul Kedrosky wonders about the small amount of Web 2.0 company failures. Rob Hof says it's just to early but the carnage is about to come.
I think also we're still in the weird phase. The wake-up phase has not begun.

The Unfulfilled Dream

Steve Gillmor rarely spends links (even in his contribution to the actual Nick-Carr-Dispute). Michael Arrington calls Nicholas Carr an asshole but spends him a link. There really a strange caste at the top of the blog hierarchy.
Getting a link from them is a (mostly) unfulfilled dream of the most B, C, D-blogger.

Only What's Written Can Be Unread

Nicholas Carr's blog post about unread bloggers is greatly written. No one has to accept (I do not agree with him), but that's the nature of a commentary.
My understanding lacks when I read all the harsh posts (see Shel Israels Open Letter and hear Michael Arringtons applaud him). Is this the culture of the blogosphere?
If so, I'm glad to have the old fashioned media.

The Podnoses - Episode 1

This is the start of a new and irregular series of three guys starting a new podcast.
It's not related to actual news.

The Lonely Battle

I do like Nicholas Carr's blogs posts about all these Web-2.0-ish (see his post Cold treats) things. We need them to stay half-way normal.

Google Has Lost Its Virginity


After Google Video has lowered its restrictions for adult videos (see blog posts from Mike Arrington and Donna Bogatin) you may have to justify your visits on this site.

The AOL Disclosure Was Just Good Intention

The disclosure of the 20,000,000 searches (see e.g. the Richard Stiennon blog or Nicholas Carr) was not a accident but the benign intention to do social search:
Don't be prude. Let the community participate in your search.

Does The Blogosphere Get Normal?

As Nicholas Carr blogged: Google likes the MySpace way. And some bloggers may not resist.
But I guess that's not the death of the Web-2.0-way. It's just getting older.

Web 2.0 Has Reached Aviation



There has not been an event lately causing this cartoon.
But this blog post from Ed Gottsman inspired me (though it does not have much to do with aviation).

The Happy Web 2.0


2.0 could be so nice if you not had to make a 1.0 living.
Thank god that AOL gave 5000 the freedom back.

The Truth Behind The Vista Delay


Eventually in summer 2009 in a headquarter in Redmond

Now we know why Vista is delayed. They are waiting until OS X is almost as unsecure as Vista (and maybe we will not have to wait too long).
