Web 2.0 sites

10/05/2005 04:01:00 PM, posted by anand

In the past few months there has been a flurry of activitiy in the web 2.0 world. Now there are dozens of web 2.0 sites that have mashed up Google maps with some sort of database, sites that have remixed applications, sites that have used AJAX extensively, rich internet application sites, sites/services that offer replacements to MS-Word, Yahoo messenger etc.

So after the initialy "wow...cool" moment, which sites have you stuck on with for day to day stuff. As far as I can recall, the only one I have been using is Google maps. But other than that.. its just the same cycle: discover latest/greatest app, play around with it or signup for beta, play some more, tell friends, write on blog and then forget about it. I never go back to those "wow...cool" applications to get some real work done. Are these just cool fads that are nice to touch and see, but never good enough to work with?

Would an IT department some company now refuse to buy MS-Word licenses, just because some site is now offering MS-Word capabilities (atleast the 20% of the features that 80% people use)?
