Web 2.0: the energy is building

I am excited about a lot of the news coming out of the Web 2.0 show. Our server engine to power many of these kinds of services and we're getting a ton of interest in it.

We're going to roll out a developer API relatively soon and we're looking for key developers to partner with to build innovative front-end applications on our platform. If you're interested, drop me an email.

We're about to announce some new OEM partners as well.

I do have to take issue with some of the press around Web 2.0 that is characterizing it as "frothy" or a "bubble economy". There is certainly some speculation happening, but it's too early to tell which things (voice over IP, social networking, blogging) will be the fabric of the new internet, and which are passing fads. We're agnostic, and believe that all of these things should be the basic building blocks of the next-generation internet. And we plan on powering it.
