Web2con article by NewsForge

November 4, 2005

Ok, I know these days I don’t talk about anything else, but this event rumbled a lot in the Web development underground… Anyway, I found really interesting news item on NewsForge about the Web 2.0 Conference ad how it is related with Open Source software.

A nice point up about Web 2.0 in general and Web2Con

November 4, 2005

While browsing the web in search of interesting news I found a not-so-recent article by Stephen Bryant on Web 2.0 Is a Call to Action.

It’s really sinthetic but it makes very well the point over what Web 2.0 means and what it’s aiming to. And most of all you can read it in 5 mins instead of the 3 hours needed to get rid of  Tim O’Reilly’s article. Just check it out.

Google Reader: a must see.

November 4, 2005

Browsing through the Web 2.0 Conference coverage I found the announce of a Google web service I missed: Google reader.

If you have a Google account you should absolutely try it, it’s a web aggregator for RSS feeds with a really enhanced AJAX implementation.

If you want to stay tuned about this and more upcoming Google services keep on eye on the Google Blog.
