Seems like the Mozilla Foundation want to bet even more on Firefox and the community supporting it with the constant development of many great extension. The news is they wills tart to pay them for doing so!
Mozilla launched the “Extend Firefox” competition with a lot of interesting prizes: Desktop PCs, iPod nanos, O’Reilly books, Gadgets and more.
This is also a good way to promote the upcoming Firefox 1.5 and encourage developers to make or update their extension compatibility with the new release of this great browser.
Check out the official announcement for the details!
As now, there are plenty of cool emerging Web Services applying the Web 2.0 principles (usabilty, semplicity, user centered), and every day there are more and more emerging with new and innovative features (just ake a look at Remember The Milk!), but what are the top services around at the moment? The ones with thousands of registered users, those the Web 2.o enthusiasts couldn’t live without?
As the Web 2.0 Café blog has just opened (we registered on WordPress.com about a week ago) I think it would be cool to start a series of reviews of the most intereting Web Services around at the moment and of the most interesting upcoming or still in beta services.
These reviews will be divided in two categories:
- Making the point: Under this title you’ll find reviews of the well known and widespread services
- What’s coming: This will be the title for the reviews of the most interesting upcoming products
Nokia just launched their new website dedicated to development of open source technologies to use with their products.
Also Tim O’Reilly published a nice report of the upcoming Microsoft Live, where he states that “…Microsoft is fully engaged with the right problemss, and we’ll be hearing a lot more from them…”.
It really seems like he’s right, but only time will show us.
This is maintained by Robert Scoble, a Microsoft Technical Evangelist with a good eye on blogging and the way future services should be.
Actually, his blog is #1 on the WordPress.com’s most active blogs list.
