Open Thread

In the tradition of Dan Gillmor, I’m going to ask that you readers comment on this post, and add a twist – how about you guys tell *me* what the news is? I’ll be in the haze of Web 2.0 all day, but I know big things are brewing, and I’ll check into this post. Go ahead, comment away! (You might start with the Google Print news – migod, as if A9 wasn’t enough reason to call Amazon a competitor…)

    I’ll add that Excite.com co-founders Joe Kraus and Graham Spencer today launched a new company called JotSpot. The company’s aiming to bring application wikis to market. see BusinessWeek.

  4. What’s cool about all these news items, or most of em anyway, is they are all coming from the conference I’m co-hosting, in real time. Thanks, keep it up!
