As most of you know, I’ve been flying solo on eHub since it launched as the first Web 2.0 list back in Oct 2005.

These days, like many of you, my life is filled with electronic communications, whether that’s email, chat, collaborative project management, mobile messages, or other data sources.

I’m at MashupCamp, a two day event at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA, nestled in Silicon Valley, south of Palo Alto and north of Sunnyvale. I mention that because there’s a palatable sense of tech here in the Bay area that can’t be ignored. It’s one of the reasons that I moved […]
