Loobylu’s return

Caterina Fake on Cnet

(…) I think that a lot of what you see out on the Web and on the Internet and what made me love the Web in the first place is that people are building, creating, sharing things all the time. Whether that is essays they wrote, discographies of their favorite bands or a little place to hang out with friends in Second Life. The Internet is such a wonderful place because of so many millions of people contributing to it. Q: “At...

What will Web 3.0 be

I got up with this question asked by Maria in my mailbox, here are my thoughts: Hopefully, a web by the people for the people: everyone wishing to have its own video, audio or written media channel will have it. Traditional media will be changed, created by contributions of citizen and journalist content; Web everywhere: we’ll more and more be using it from home, coffees, using it from our computers, TVs and mobile phones....

Planet MySpace

“…turning MySpace into a global power could be far more complicated than marketing a movie overseas. While the company has 100 million registered users, most are in the United States.

Web 2.0 welcoming Marketing 2.0

Taken from MarketingProfs: “(…) Web 2.0 is certainly not an ideal term, but it has tremendous value as an umbrella term that communicates the general nature of the more connected, more social, more expressive Web.

Everyone is a journalist

“Journalism is a recent trend in history. Before there were newspaper, everyone was a reporter. People passed the news to each other. the arrival of the newspaper brought about a sudden division between journalist and reader. You could only read about what the journalist considered newsworthy. That led to a narrowing of vision. The internet has put this one-way traffic right again; never before has it been so easy to send a...

Thoughts about blogging and podcasting

just found the following notes in a book left over for weeks: – blogs are giving space to emerging talents, giving them a window they would never have got otherwise – thus they are also giving space for experimentation and amateur content, amateurs being: 1- artists who took a different way than the usual academic path, who are not depending or waiting on any kind of approval (diploma) to publish their work (video, text,...

Hey kids, TV is definitely out. Four Eyed Monsters is one of my favorite vlog – i honestly much prefer watching these guy than turning my cable TV on. What’s wrong? Blogging gave written medias the worse headaches ever (circa 2002-2003).

Hi, i’m the inventor of the World Wide Web

‘In 1989 one of the main objectives of the WWW was to be a space for sharing information. It seemed evident that it should be a space in which anyone could be creative, to which anyone could contribute. The first browser was actually a browser/editor, which allowed one to edit any page, and save it back to the web if one had access rights. Strangely enough, the web took off very much as a publishing medium, in which people...
