What is RoR ?

     If you have’nt checked out RoR ( Ruby on Rails – the latest buzz) in the web 2.0, go check it out, It was just /. ‘ed a few hours ago. Also comes the news that Curt Hibbs who wrote the Onlamp rails article has released InstantRails (a package simillar to Lamp for ruby)

Antithesis of web 2.0

Admist the buzz & hype of web 2.0 you find Nicholas Carr giving his anti-thesis on it. Nicholas has shot to fame by taking the most hyped about trend and plain right rejecting it down. But having said I must admit that he does’nt say things for the heck of it, he has reasonable arguments surrounding his points, only that he notches his assertion to an extreme level.

Comparing Reed & Metcalfe

Nivi has an interesting post comparing Reed’s Law & Metcalfe’s Law, he discusses an entire range of  Sarnoff , Odlyzko  and  Haque‘s Law. It would be interesting to check out Umair’s response to it (especially Dunbar number).  And yes of course this post leads to a Nivi’s Law :-), leaving no hole unplugged so that a new network law can be created 🙂

P2P meets RSS – “collaborative micronews delivery”

Very very Interesting in concept but lot of real world limitations need to be overcome.  Incentives, secuirty etc.

Mobile 2.0 – YABW

YABW – Yet Another Buzz word 🙂

    By now you most who keep themselves tuned to the technology would  have heard of the trends in web & web 2.0 , another thing that I am trying  keep up with quite very actively is stuff that is going in the mobile space.  In that context I found this post pretty interesting –  Mobile 2.0 

      Btw has anyone noticed that of late  more than 50% of  posts in contentsutra in last few weeks is about mobile companies/deals happening in India.

Mashups are the trend but this

Web 2.0 is a lot about mashups(recombination) and lot of simple mashups are happening right now but this site that I just saw just blew my mind. NYSee. It is a combination of GoogleMaps, Traffic Cameras & A9 images of New York City. Holy Sholy you can check out live the traffic that is moving on NYC right now. Looking at this immediately reminded me of Seth Green(as Lyle) when he checks out the traffic in the movie Italian Job
