Kevin Werbach: “I’ve spoken with several venture capitalists recently about Technorati and Feedster, two aggregation services for RSS feeds. The VCs see the buzz around blogs, syndication, and social networking. Yet they can’t figure out function the aggregation services provide. The best argument I’ve been able to come up with is the following: Technorati and Feedster are on the path to the Semantic Web that actually works. They are attacking a very big problem — the machine-readable Web — by addressing small problems that are real and immediate.”
Like so many other things, we may think big and envision the perfect future, but it will happen in small steps unknown to most. One fine day, we will wake up to find that it is here!
