Web 2.0 knowledge aggregation sites you shouldn’t avoid, if you are in business world;
Of course based on your sector and special interest there are many more sites you shouldn’t avoid. But I won’t be getting into them today.
Love to see a Y Combinator startup to excel. Scribd is a good free offering to everybody and has an opportunity to make it big on the internet. I am a believer in Scribd.
For me Linkedins’ value can be even much more than 1 billion. Where they lack is a strong marketing campaign where Premium Membership is transformed into a status symbol. Also the heavy users (500+ people) should be granted free access to some kind of a status and free extra services (with their earned status). There should be a schema similar to Credit Card business.
I am sure Linkedin has plans in these areas. I think these things are really hard to implement but doable in right hands. Hopefully, they will reach the right talent to make Linkedin the major player on online networks.
Skype is bringing the next big technology to us, and without any strings attached (no costs); Video chat rooms without any extra hardware or costs.
The next frontier in off-site working is just starting. I think skype will be one of the major companies to make the shift in the way we do business. They will be the company who shared these technologies to the masses. Skype brand is already included in my lovemarks lists.
