GenuineVC David Beisel's Perspective on Digital Change

December 5, 2005

When I saw John Battelle’s post from Saturday about MySpace’s classified site, the thing that immediately popped into my mind was the 90’s boom mantra of a web property’s three pillars: community, content, and commerce. With the latter two in the bag, it seems like a natural step for MySpace to venture into the third.

With everyone’s (including my own) new and improved structure for looking at Web 2.0, it’s interesting, however, to look at the current state through an “old” lens. What is old is new again, especially in the classified arena, given this MySpace development along with Microsoft’s and Google’s recent forays.
