I just read a quick synopsis by Jeff Jarvis of the new companies that were introduced at the Web 2.0 conference. I hesitate to say it, but the truth is, i don't get what many of them do (and i really don't like the names of most of them, but that's besides the point). Maybe it's because i'm not a techie, but many of these technologies seem like they are built for the sake of technology and will make sense only to other techies. I just can't see ordinary people like myself embracing a lot this stuff (at least not yet). Though i regret not attending the Web 2.0 Conference, as i think Clipmarks would have impressed a lot of the attendees, i think there is a kind of 'mine is bigger than yours' thing going on with companies trying to develop amazing technolgoy instead of simply trying to solve problems. Again, it might be that i just don't get it...but at the end of the day, doesn't that fact alone say a lot? I hope that Clipmarks can gain the respect of the Web 2.0 crowd while not alienating ordinary people.
