The perfect guide to web 2.0

This is as useful as it is confusing… Go2Web2.0


Paranoia 2.0

Found this on Mike’s blog. I think it’s interesting and gives a good perspective to the earlier customer service post. But how much is paranoia and how much do we have to fear data mining? If they collect my data, to make content customized – I love it. But it would be nice to know the agenda of the people collecting it.

Why is social media on web 2.0 different?

As Daria Rasmussen (my lovely co-worker) and me stressed several times under a conference on social media we hosted in march this year, social media is in its basic nature not so much different than 20 years ago. We now use last/Pandora or ilike to express our identity through public playlists, we make profiles on social networks as we  spend ours fillig out friendship-books and passing them  through our social networks 20 years ago (Personally I always had a problem filling out the “My future”- box, because my outer self wanted to be a hip journalist writing about politics and media, but deep inside I still had a little girl really wanting to be an indian princess – but I ever wrote that, in case some of the boys from the 6th grade would see the book)

The things going on in the media users heads and in their social interaction is not so much different. But the huge gap is in the speed in which these things go on. The adaptation rate is sky rocketting and I get dizzy just by thinking about the reach of our messages.

So there’s nothing new on social media – the news is in the broadband acces…

This is a good recent example copied with pride from Dan Calladine (love your newsletter, Dan!)

iLike popularity jumps due to Facebook widget?
“In true Internet fashion, iLike has gone through a year’s worth of
growth in a little over a week. As I wrote here last week, the company
went from having just 1,200 users to having more than 400,000 in a
little over a day — which taxed its resources to the point where it
doubled the number of servers it was running five times and still didn’t
have enough capacity. Eventually, the company had to plead with its
Silicon Valley friends and neighbours to provide extra servers for it to
use. And where is it now? It has quintupled in size again, and has more
than 2.2 million users.”

This is a really good example on how a lot of the exiting web 2.0 applications can be a huge part of a wide range of companies product innovation in the coming years. The feature showed in this video is really something that could make a difference for me in my choice of vehicle. Especially in a world where it is so difficult to make a difference. All cars (I’ve seen) on the market today are able to fullfil my car-needs. I don’t really care about all the “car”-specific numbers and stuff – all I care for is how it affects the environment and besides that I’m done – which leaves me with quite a wide selection. So it is the ability to make a difference that will make the outcome. So I just hope they will make this available in mini coopers too, because design is another element that will make an easy choice…

This is something that would make me talk about a product (see, it already is)


Truth in Ad sales

This is really really funny… An ironic approach to my everyday work…. It’s funny – all the prejudice about the media industry collected in one video…..

Simultanious viewing?

Spending some time exploring all the new emerging technologies challenging the traditional TVviewing and bringing the TV experience online, combining the best of both worlds, I am a bit confused about the lack of keeping the feeling of flow TV. Watching Youtube, dailymotion, currentTV, Jalipo and Joost I miss something. Even though it seems as there are a tendency towards on-demand viewing I see plenty of possibilities of keeping the aspect of flow and live at the same time as the possibilities of control. Especially at Joost where they very nicely have combined chat functions and viewing it doesn’t make sense that there aren’t a flow to gather around with? Have I missed something. It would be obvious to be able to invite somebody to view content simultaniously as re-creating the feeling of shared viewing across space and context. But can’t find out if I’m just a newbie in Joost or if online TV just is killing flow TV.
