Web 2.0, Platforms and Web Economics

Platforms and web economics 2.0

But there are some other aspects to what people mean by “Web 2.0.” Paul Graham calls it “democracy, and not dissing users.” Tim O’Reilly calls it “the architecture of participation.” And pretty much everyone agrees it involves users owning and controlling their own data.

[…] So yes, I do think it is still possible for new eBays and Amazons to be created, but I think it will be more and more difficult. Instead, models like those adopted (at least initially) by Google and MySpace, which base their value upon utility to the user rather than a lock-in of user data, will become the more certain path to success.
