Web 2.007 (Web two dot oo seven)

And of course – in the typical spirit of Silicon Valley – here are some more predictions:

- YouTube will have much more users then MySpace
- Web 2.0 will enter the business world
- LinkedIn will go public
- Investments in traditional software will be next to nothing end of 07
- The number of Internet users: 1 Billion
will become the "number of the year" for all marketers
- World of Warcraft may be another IPO candidate
but may be purchased by Sony and runs on the “cell”
- Xeequa will have more customers by end of 2007 than SFDC
(just kidding – but you get the ambition)
- Second Life will become the leading virtual business party spot
- TV and print adds will further plunge to total none importance
- Relevance as measured by Technorati, Alexa and others
will become the market cap index for private companies

Let me know what you predict :-)

Xeequa receives first award

What an honor - the company is not even launched yet and we get our first award. On Zolis block you can read:
And the Winner of the Weirdest Company Name Award is: Xeequa
I couldn't help to get some explanation. But hear the whole story on the 15th when we launch the company.
In any case, thanks Zoli.

Xeequa Company Launch

For many this this will come as a surprise. Only a hand full of people and a team of engineers knew about it. Today we declare end of stealth.

January 15th 2007 I will launch an new force in the collaboration space and particular Indirect Business. Xeequa, the new company is in business to help companies instantly create and manage profitable partner alliances. Unlike today’s channel management solutions, which are owned by one vendor for “their” channel, Xeequa allows instant Cross-Company Collaboration for all companies with all partners simultaneously. All based on Web 2.0 technology.

Tanooma, the SaaS directory, will also early next year come out of Beta. We already changed the advertising mechanism to Adsense by Google which allows us to simply interact with Google to leverage our ad space. SaaS companies can self register; self service their profile so that Tanooma is pretty much a fully automated - self supporting entity. Registering a company or searching through the SaaS industry on Tanooma is completely free of charge and we have no intention to charge for being represented there. That allows us to have the most complete directory in the SaaS space.
