TechCrunch – Web 2.0 Companies I Couldn’t Live Without

December 30, 2005
 

There have been numerous 2005 “best of? and 2006 “predictions? posts over the last few weeks as the year comes to an end. I’m not going to write one of those. Giving out “best of? awards seems presumptuous to me, given that I’ve been blogging all of six months. And while predictions are fun, they aren’t all that useful in the end.

What I do want to write about as I reminisce about the year ending in a couple of days are the Web 2.0 companies that I love and use every day.

I’ve tested over a thousand products this year, and have written about hundreds. And while some of the companies I write about get very positive reviews, I find that the only true test of the value of a product is its staying power: do I continue to use the product, and maybe even pay for it, as the days and months go by?

So for those of you that are curious, here is a short list of the companies that have held my attention, and that I would not choose to live without on the web:

Bloglines

I have a love/hate relationship with Bloglines, but they’ve recently improved performance dramatically, and I really like that I can see the number of subscribers for each feed. This was the hardest one to include on the list, but at the end of the day I couldn’t leave them off.

Del.icio.us

I use Del.icio.us multiple times every day to store and retrieve bookmarks. I freely admit that there are better solutions out there and I may very well switch to one of them in the near future, but you have to hand it to Del.icio.us for inventing the social bookmark phenomenon.

FeedBurner

I love the statistics Feedburner provides on feed readership and has lots of advanced features that are important to me. And despite what I’ve written in the past, I know and trust the FeedBurner team. I just wish they’d get rid of the advertisement on my feed page. -)

Flickr

I enjoy Flickr more and more every day. I like seeing what my friends are up to based on the photos they upload as well as getting comments from others on my pictures. And I am starting to go back and upload old sets of photos from years ago. Flickr is just perfect.

Measuremap

The Measure Map blog analytics tool created by Adaptive Path gives me incredible insight into who is looking at what on TechCrunch. They need to deal with the speed issue for larger blogs though (it takes minutes sometimes to pull up stats, or just breaks).

Memeorandum

Memeorandum is how I keep up on the blogosphere when I don’t have time to read all of my feeds. It has also changed what I blog about, and how. Memeorandum is a cultural phenomenon.

Netvibes

Yeah, there are a lot of Ajax desktops out there, but Netvibes seems to stay ahead of the pack on functionality. The flickr stuff is great. Plus, how can I not love a service that includes TechCrunch as a default feed? -)

Omnidrive

I’ve been waiting for something like this forever. I forsee a day when a service like Omnidrive comes packaged with a new PC, or is offered alongside web email solutions. I’ve only had it for a few days, but I’m smitten. And fair disclosure: there are some awesome competitors out there, too, that I am just starting to look at.

Pandora

I listen to Pandora whenever I write – sometimes for hours a day. I’ve discovered countless new artists from it.

Skype

What can I say? Along with Vonage, Skype keeps my phone bills down to next to nothing, and it is an integral part of my everyday business and personal life. I would trade application sharing for the new video feature in a heartbeat, however.

Technorati

I use it more than Google. No one has launched anything better, yet. And they’ve made great progress in search speed over the latter half of the year.

WordPress

I love WordPress. Actually, let me rephrase that statement: I love WordPress 1.5. Version 2.0 makes me want to throw my laptop out of the window. But it is an amazing piece of software, and all of my blogs run on it.

Yahoo Maps

I use Yahoo Maps because it allows multi-point driving instructions, something none of the others offer yet. This was incredibly useful when I had to attend three or four holiday parties on the same evening.

Web2.0: 2006年?言系列

December 29, 2005

眼瞅?2005年就沒啦,2006年的網絡到底是個什么樣?,兩傢關註web2.0的Blog給出了他們關于2006年Web2.0髮展的?言:

2006 Web2.0预言一: SNS大收缩

SNS,曾?是红?一时的?务。与其它Web2.0?务??的是,它是在一个毫无?义的?论指导下一路风光的。SNS?散的朋?关系无法让用户回头,SNS被多家?务商把用户划为一个个的孤岛,??迹象表明SNS?得?进行改良,这预示?SNS的必然转型或失败。SNS改良的结果?能是个人门户,?能是结?Blog的?务商,当然最大的?能性是一具僵尸。

2006 Web2.0预言二: BSP管???出?

在广大?客的呼声中《BSP管???(?案)》出?. ??报刊影?力的日益下?, ?客领域将?为??的宣传阵地. “?客是一个宣传的阵地, 如果我们?去?领, 就会被敌人?领”, “把支部建在BSP上”, ?为有识之士的共识. 有网?估计, 目?我国的民主政治建设比美国好5?, 届时?能达到现在的50?. 网上将出现高度一致的和?声音.

2006 Web2.0预言三:80% BSP会消失或?为僵尸

BSP一直是没有找到赢利模??务商。在一??赴?继的浪潮中,在媒体的喧嚣中,BSP终于?于了泡沫2.?的最顶层。2??6,?大多数BSP将消失?转型或者?为僵尸。“你觉得你是在写作,但是你没有感觉到BSP正承??伤痛。?

RSS?务,包括READER和BURNER越?越?能满足阅读?求, 弊病凸显. 以RSS为??的?作已?过时, ?而代之的是RSS ?目?作. 它将以FeedBurner的?目存储, Google的?目评价拉开?幕. RSS改?势在必行.
分类广告将完全被中介信???, 分类广告失去诚信.
                            ???Web2.0Focus, 关注该关注的… (未完??待续)
2??6年??大web 2.0预言
  1. Technorati将被收购。Technorati大家该?会陌生?。在没看内容之?,我?下认为Technorati应该被Yahoo?收购,居然blogherald和我想的一样。Yahoo!看样?注定??为Web 2.0 killer了。??惜Flickr和Del.icio.us被收购?三天两头宕机,yahoo还得多注??是。
  2. SixApart?会被出售。blogherald预言SixApart?能在2??6年进行IPO(首次公开募股),然?在Nasdaq上市,预计市值将达到2亿美元?
  3. Nick Denton将出售Gawker Media。尽管Nick Denton曾多次声明?会出售Gawker Media,?过世事难料,就?大多数人想?到mop收购donews一样。
  4. MSN Spaces用户将超过1亿。这个似乎?以实现。
  5. blog数?将达到4亿。今年7月,blogherald的统计数?是:全?大约有7000万个网志。
  6. blog网络将得到巩固
  7. blog广告将(?次)??
  8. 针对blog的规则将更多。这个,我想中国blogger最有?言?了。
  9. 政治blog将继续失去在blog圈的影?力。
  10. 将新出现15?家web 2.0公?,但是将以全军覆没告终。

                            ???Web2.0周刊

两家分?的有?有眼,是?如此姑且?论,但相信2006年Web2.0将会得到更加缤纷多彩的应用,更多创新的有价值的东西会呈现的互?网上。期待2006……

Jinn’s Note – History of World (Ⅰ)·Some Photos

December 23, 2005

近?在读《人类文明?图鉴》(History of World ),这是第一部《人类的黎明》中的几幅图片:

   

 

 

 

 

关于History of World ,由美国Time Life授?出版,剑桥?牛津?哈佛?大英?物馆??浮宫等???学府??物机构的专家学者撰稿。对人类文明人生??展的历?作了全新的?述。全书就人与自然?城市?家庭?战争等文明侧?进行了详细的介?。该书涵盖世界?大文明,并??分?视历?的分?。对?个文明的起???展演??现状都以通俗明快的语言作了历?的评?。被誉为人类文明?的“纸上?物馆?。


第一?《人类的黎明》目录?简摘

1.进化之路

“人类为脑?的扩大所付出的代价是在?天的生活中——?生命早期——的无助状?的增加。一匹新生的马?以独自站起?,出生两?时内??行走;大猩猩在出生12个月时??自?生活;而人类?在6?之?始终处在凡事都?赖?亲的状?。?

2.人类在地?上的分布

“用?对于改进人类的命?所起的最基本作用,就是在其他动物那里造???怖。……?焰的??性还体现在,原始人群总是使它长燃??的,至少?它?????,无论是在洞穴或棚屋的里?还是外?。正因如此,???了人类群体活动的中心,?了从未有过的??社会生活的?焦之处,?了一个家的根基。围绕这个根基人群?以更和??更有效地结?起?,而?是?长久地游动在外那样?散无?,这个?识第一次开始扎下了根。?

3.驯化自然

“一旦建立了农业居?地,大多数人就?会返回到旧的生活方?下。人?的压力是人类从事农业的原因之一,现在?已??为人类回到旧的生活方?下的生活的巨大的障?。人们?识到他们唯一的出路就是??进,寻求新的?展。人类已?学会了控制支?自然,现在他们??临?一个新的严峻的考验——如何支?自己。?

4.?民社会的创立者

“公元?6000年左?,河??的?一个?居地留下的??记录大概是世界上最早的象形文字了,但汉字的?身?是在公元?2?纪?得以应用的。如果历?真是如此,那么河?的??家们比美索?达米亚的书记员?早产生了至少2000年。?
