Good Web 2.0 Forum?
« on: July 16, 2007, 09:24:19 PM »
I have a question that may sound a little strange inside this community, but I'd like to know it nonetheless:

Does any of you know a good forum that discusses Web 2.0 apps (like 37signals, Netvibes or Zoho)? I've been searching the web for what seems forever, but could only find some blogs (like ITRedux) or general web sites (like TechCrunch) that discuss Web 2.0 apps. What I'd like to find is a forum that is to Web 2.0 what www.emaildiscussions.com is to E-Mail services or this wonderful forum is to fine Windows desktop software.

Any suggestions?

Please note that I'm not suggesting discussing those apps here, since I think this forum should, in general, stay focused on being a great resouce for good Windows software.

Disclaimer: I know that Web 2.0 apps, in general, suck compared to their desktop counterparts. They're still slow, under-featured and might disappear any day. But they fill a niche when you need something location-independent and not to be installed on your desktop (like when you're working in a corporate environment where you have no other choice).

(Didn't know if this is suitable here or should go into "Living Room" or somewhere else, sorry.)

As it happens, I'm currently building a list of internet resources I consult as I search out information for my blog.  The list is incomplete; I've got quite a few more to add [2-3 times a week, I'm adding several, rather than all at one go].

This list is buried in my blog as a subpage under the WEBSITES tab.  Here's a direct link [hope I type it in properly]:

I will of course monitor this thread for additions to my own list.

Just discovered this Pagecast which lists a bunch of Web 2.0-oriented blogs.

as has been suggested in another thread, don't put url links in the special CODE block, just leave them in your message like normal, and the forum will automatically make them hyperlinks.

This time it looks like the link is definitively missing.

BTW: As I already stated, there are some blogs geared towards Web 2.0. What seems to be missing is a forum.
