A few Web 2.0 updates…

So I’ve been without Internet for over a week now! I’m calling tonight to get it set up, but in the meantime I wanted to post a few quick updates from the Web 2.0 world…

  • Sixent – Is a new social networking platform launched by Ottawa-based Ramius Corp. I’ve been meaning to write a full review, but for now, I really like it and it’s gaining some great momentum… So check it out and don’t forget to add me as your contact! Oh yea, also when I was playing out with it I created a Web 2.What? group too, so join in and post a comment for suggestions of what I should do with it!
  • In other Ottawa Web 2.0 news, Overlay.tv officially launched last week out of Beta and has been creating a media storm. Check out the coverage on Tech Crunch featuring a vid with Ashton Kutcher… 
  • LinkedIn now has a discussion feature for its groups! Previously if you were a member of any LinkedIn group, you were probably wondering what the point of it was… Well now you can discuss with other group members. A definitely long-awaited feature.
  • Google announced the launch of Google Chrome. A new browser that promises to be faster and more efficient than any other. In fact they have a cute little comic explaining how that is. I haven’t had a chance to download it yet (having no Internet except for iPhone) so if you’ve tried it, drop a comment and let me know what I have to look forward to.

That’s all that comes to mind for now, but I’ll have some exciting news to announce very shortly…

Social Media Breakfast in Ottawa 2–Tuesday, July 15

First of all, expect my postings to be light over the next bit, it’s summer and finally beautiful out and I just got my new iPhone so while I’m getting to know it, I don’t foresee myself blogging too much. (Until I learn how to blog FROM the iPhone…)

Anyway, I did want to let you know about the Social Media Breakfast event happening next Tuesday, July 15. This time Overlay.tv‘s CEO Rob Lane will be talking all about monetizing video and presenting some case studies from Overlay.tv, which I don’t really know too much about yet, but it sounds very cool!

Check it out and don’t forget to come say hello. Though I have a funny feeling there might be more than a few faces buried in their iPhones…
