Web 2.0 Today
Nobody has really stepped up to the plate and taken a total dominating stance on the web. Google is pushing applications to the web to "compete" with Microsoft, but has anyone really tried to compete with them? Is everyone missing the boat completely?
Why hasn't Google created development tools to develop "Google" applications? Why hasn't Facebook? Why haven't any of the so called visionary companies out there created a real viable platform for building web applications? Some of you are thinking they have. Nay Nay they definitely have not. They have all created API's and very simple Wiki documentation surrounding their API’s. Sure the concept of Mashups, XML standards, Web Services is becoming mainstream, but has anyone really taken the time to BUILD the development tools that are needed to build Web 2.0 applications? Has anyone taken the time, or the ridiculous amounts of money they have, to build a platform on which future web applications can be built?
Microsoft missed the boat on Web 2.0, and the Web in general, and are currently way behind on the advertising side of things, but they have a plan, believe me, and it’s deeper than people think. What kills me (and almost makes me laugh), is that they have done it before, and nobody seems to see it coming!
