Social media, web 2.0, distributed services, widgets etc.

Here is a great observation by Lawrence Coburn, founder of Rate it All, on this month’s New Tech Venture meetup:

"Nice summary Mia.  I found it interesting that a recurring theme among each of the four presenters was how each was racing to become a distributed service.  Mobissimo through a browser extension, Tangler through Bizdev, BlogRovr through a download, and RateItAll through widgets."

Distributed services also seemed to be a leading theme at TieCon 2007: The New Face of Entrepreneurship conference at the Santa Clara convention center this weekend and probably at the Salesforce.com conference starting on Monday. It was a phenomenal gathering of the valley ‘s new-age entrepreneurs, tech evangelists, and VCs. Over the next few days, I will share my findings from the various panels on social media and mobile technology that I found very interesting. I was tickled pink to find both Google and Yahoo! on the same Mobile Multimedia panel..more on that later.

I am trying out the beta version of the Rate it All widget, which I think is the neatest little information distribution/sharing tool and a great way to get more traffic to your blog. Check it out!
