If Netscape was the standard bearer for Web 1.0, Google is most certainly the standard bearer for Web 2.0, if only because their respective IPOs were defining events for each era.Google doesn’t have the image of being the most out-spoken company. Especially because of the what I associate with term “web 2.0”. Therefore i'd have to say; "sorry Tim your'e wrong" (at least this time). Google sure has made huge strides in the right direction by recently embracing blogging, rss aggregation, video on demand, DRM etc... but we tend to forget all about YAHOO. Yahoo IS taking the appropriate steps in making web 2.0 a reality. Believe me. they really are. Whats really intersting though is that a google search for the term web 2.0 lists yahoo as ranked number 2; and if you know about google ranking technologies, thay do have a pretty good algorithm (just kidding) for it. Much of the 1.0 is (or was) Google. Web 2.0 is gonna be yahoo, and I bet my lucky dollar on it. Another good comparision link is Google Labs vs Yahoo Research. mad money prediction : (after a couple of beers) :: as contrary to Jim Cramer; Boo Yaaahhh YHOO. sell sell sell; sell sell sell GOOG. AND hey !! I'm no expert in the NY stock market. Get ready to loose all your money if you wanna follow my ADVISE... I guess you can judge for yourselves. You know better right ? The older the better.... and this old article speaks volumes ;-) knock knock !! ?
UPDATE : Did you see the google stock price today (ie: January 18th 2006) ?? I'm getting good at predictions.... (just kidding) here's a screenshot of GOOG just 9 hours after this post ;-). Guess I should start my own TV show. Please do me a favor and do not compare it to YHOO today.... I'm gonna loose my chances of hosting my own TV show if you do ;-)UPDATE 2 :
In order to conduct a scientific survey of the tiger population this year, Wildlife Institute of India (WII) would soon be issuing photo identity cards to all the tigers of the country. WII scientists have also proposed three new scientific techniques to have a more accurate count of the tigers living in the wild. As per the proposal, the three techniques are namely computerised pugmarks, camera traps and DNA tests. All the three techniques would be used in the tiger survey starting in the country from January 15.

I hope this helps those bloggers, who are reluctant to blog with fears of repercussions of their posts. Well, fear is a factor, ignorance is another, and knowledge to know the difference is well the third ;-) just like in ...

Al Taqwa bank, part of a network of financial companies named by the Bush administration as a major source and distributor of funds for Osama bin Laden's terrorist operations, has shareholders that include prominent Arab figures from numerous countries in the Middle East. Al Taqwa was a so-called "hawala" operation (an informal word-of-mouth system that keeps no records and relies on trust) that facilitated transfers of cash between agents worldwide. The bank also used correspondent accounts : accounts that banks have in other banks -- to transmit cash to its agents. Source: salon.com.

Well, I have been told that a majority of the shareholders in Citigroup ARE Saudi Arabians. I am not so sure on whether this is true or not, However, you could research this for me and post your findings here. So anyway, why am I posting CitiBank's Boo Boo alongwith references to Sept 11th, Well, I Just hope it's not true, BUT, If CitiBank has lost huge volumes of it's customer data, AND if Saudi's DO have a huge stake in CitiBank, and IF this lost Data falls into the hands of folks that it was not meant to be, Well, Houston we sure do have a problem. Remember those Phishing emails we all receive, Well, expect that number to just increase from now on.
