Something for Everyone

11 March 2006

Joyent’s weblog is on my morning reading list. This morning, Dean Allen dropped a little entry out there that provided fodder for the Web 2.0 fires.

He linked to an entry about fonts and colors in the logos of web 2.0 companies.The Logos of Web 2.0 If the logos don’t get your attention, a museum of beta sites might.

Three things continue to bother me about the concept of software as service, web 2.0, software on demand, utility computing or web applications. They are:

  1. Can I back up my data to a local PC or device?
  2. What happens when the application(s) are down? They will be.
  3. Who will win among the contenders as populous as in 1999?
