The Micro Killer Apps

Web 2.0 is all about micro killer apps. These are killer apps that are so simple its difficult to explain them to people. Each one of them does one tiny little thing very well. del.icio.us does bookmarking right. flickr does photo sharing and tagging. RSS/Atom helps keep track of changes to resources. Small is beautiful.

... and they can all be built easily using XWiki, a second generation open source wiki (see http://www.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Main/SecondGenerationWiki) ;-)

Your article Second Generation Wiki shows very well how XWiki can help serve the long tail of micro web applications - and thereby become a micro killer app :-)

But not everything need happen on the server. There can also be client side micro killer apps.
