Nick Carr’s difficulty in understanding my argument that cloud computing is likely to end up a low-margin business unless companies find some way to harness the network effects that are the heart of Web 2.0 made me realize that I use the term “network effects” somewhat differently, and not in the simplistic way many people understand it.

Network Effects in Data - O'Reilly Radar

Here’s Nick: Let’s stop here, and take a look at the big kahuna on the Net, Google, which O’Reilly lists as the first example of a business that has grown to dominance thanks to the network effect. Is the network effect really the main engine fueling Google’s dominance of the search market? I would argue that it certainly is not….

Jaiku/Twitter/Facebook/Kyte/Plaxo = something happening you shou

Stephanie Booth, everyone’s favorite Swiss blogger, met me tonight at the Jaiku party (that’s Jaiku’s PR guy, Neil Vineberg holding the Jaiku poster) and said I had to add Dopplr to my bag of tricks (it keeps track of where you, and your friends, are). Forget Dopplr right now, because most of you haven’t yet experienced many of these five services that help you share your presence and other things about what you’re doing, or what you’re thinking about with other people.

The topic will be "Social Computing: From LifeStyle To WorkStyle" and will focus on some of the more interesting trends I've found in the social software space. While much of the media focus is on the technology, I've been more interested in examining aspects related to organizational dynamics and the manner in which such software can enable more effective social scaffolding within enterprises. To over-generalize the consumer market: People begin to use socially-oriented sites for their own purposes They end up sharing content more easily with friends, family and so on Along the way they discover that they can find information and activities that are of interest more rapidly And in doing so, continue to connect with other people, forming relationships, communities, etc.

They reached both milestones faster than UK-based competitor Zopa, which was recently named a Busines 2.0 “Disruptor.” Prosper allows members to request loans of up to $25,000 (the average funded loan is $5,000), and then other members offer to fund the loan at various interest rates.

Over 4,000 loans have been funded since the site launched in February 2006. Prosper earns revenue by taking 1% of the loan amount in fees from the borrower up front, and charging a 0.5% yearly loan maintenance fee to lenders.

Nine ideas for IT managers considering Enterprise 2.0. As browser-based software, SaaS, and Web 2.0 continue to make some inroads in the enterprise, it's the lack of useful pioneer reports that hampers the early adoptors. Sure, many of us witness the often amazing trends taking place out on the Web in the form of mountains of user generated content and communication and collaboration occuring en masse via blogs and spaces.
