Via Evan Tim O'Reilly lists the current development and charts the future of the net. It's nice to see an emerging market that so far seems to have enough competition yet still be based on standards.
I'll be the first to admit that I jumped on the web log bandwagon (though I rolled my own) but until recent articles like Tim's I hadn't viewed my creations through SonicBoomerang as part of new emerging markets. There are business models out there, as SonicBoomerang is slowly proving but like any good viable business it takes time. The .com boom may be over, but the fun is just starting.
