GenuineVC David Beisel's Perspective on Digital Change

July 26, 2005

Konfabu-device. O’Reilly says Yahoo’s acquisition of mini-application “widget” maker Konfabulator is evidence of a “long term platform shift that I’ve been calling Web 2.0.” He goes on to say that “the expectation that web companies will only buy other web companies should be put firmly into the trash bin.” Yes, that makes sense. If one extends this thinking, perhaps it’s not just about extending the internet from the web to the desktop, but even further as well? Does this mean that Ambient Devices – which makes actual physical devices connected to the internet – is next on the list?

Tag Me Funny. If you start browsing http://del.icio.us/tag/funny, you won’t be able to stop. Trust me. My favorite find thus far is the thirty second bunny reenactment of Pulp Fiction.

WhiteFeed. Feedmail – the next evolution in “email-like” communication or merely an overly-elaborate and overly-complex way to create an email whitelist to avoid spam?

“The New Black” is the New Black. Soon after I declared “tagging” as the new black, Paul Kedrosky (also on the VC Channel) declared “focus” the new black. Tagging’s reign ends after merely two days. But then I found this post (through Wikipedia) and realized that everything is the new black.

    Apparently, purse functions to contain money and some certificates or else. It is convenient to location and get money or certificates out in classification in contrast to pocket. Which is its original use. From my point of view, a excellent purse should reflect one’s character and correspond to his appreciation. Even so, an individual regards it considered as status and dignity, so they try to own a valuable wallet. One of my pals was robbed when paying a newspaper at a news stall. Compared to money, there were some significant certificates such as identity card and checks. What really should be worth raising is that the purse costed his half month’s income just a month ago. He was so down.tag replicas|
