Google: A future Champ

The slight disruption is service has been down to a music festival – very good – and quick visit to the lakes to celebrate my mum’s 60th.

Whist up there I came across one of those ‘guide to the web’ books from 2000 and this page caught my eye

  1. I think it will go far.
    Do you think there is anything launching this year that we will look back in eight years’ time and wonder why we didn’t see its significance? Or are Google and Microsoft two conflicting superpowers in the internet cold war?

  2. Pat : I see big things for them too. As for what comes next I think that the time for the big surprises like google has come and gone. Trying to identify the next facebook in the social networking areana – where the action is at =- is tricky as it’s pretty saturated. I think it’s going to be an app on another platform ie mobile/tv that makes the leap.

    David : oh for a time machine and 1000 bucks

    Dan: As a mac user I can only dream of what chrome will be like but a quick poke around makes me think pretty good.
