Getting the word out the old-fashioned way

One of the most important aspects of starting a new web service is telling people about it.  Despite the wonders of Google, it is still difficult to get people to notice your new web site.  That’s why it’s still so important to tell people face to face what you are doing.  But where?

I’ve found seven great places to let people know about new Web 2.0 services this year.  Here they are, in chronological order:


1.       Software 2008

The comfortable equilibrium between software supplier and IT buyer has been shattered. Open Source is now an accepted – and often favored – option to traditional commercial software. Monolithic applications are threatened by SOA. SaaS liberates businesses from software itself. And Enterprise 2.0 tools, such as wikis and social networks, pose a growing challenge for IT.
