A great article on Web 2.0

I’ve just come across this article on TechNewsWorld, Web 2.0 Has Corporate America Spinning.  Author Robert Hof is from BusinessWeek Online, and covers pretty much everything that is Web 2.0 or has to do with Web 2.0.  If you’re unfamiliar with the term, this is a good place to start, to learn about the applications that are the "new internet," and what kinds of business/management adaptations will be made in the near future to accomodate Web 2.0, and to keep up with it.

TimesSelect, we’re not worthy

Mark Glaser, of MediaShift, has been suggesting turning New York Times columnists into bloggers.  His argument is that we shouldn’t have to pay TimesSelect to get our information, and that instead of the journalists receiving their income from the TimesSelect revenues from subscriber fees, they could generate income through ad sales…Some have been pointing out his reasoning as faulty.  Would these journalists make good bloggers, and therefore actually be able to create an equal "salary" from the ads?  Or is it not even worth debating, because TimesSelect is a service worthy of pay?

Will Microsoft buy eBay?

"'[Microsoft] can either improve MSN to make
it more of a real competitor to Google, or it can take a different
approach, for example by buying eBay,’ said Martin Reynolds, an analyst
at Gartner. ‘Google is quietly creeping up on Microsoft, and eBay would
take Microsoft in a whole new direction.’" 
Articles are out speculating the purchase of eBay by Microsoft, springing from a report in the New York Post recently which stated that Microsoft and eBay were in preliminary talks.  Microsoft is interested in buying out eBay to merge it with MSN.  It also doesn’t hurt that upon buying out eBay, Microsoft would acquire Skype, which eBay gained last year.  Find more info here.
