So I am still working on my super dooper Goolizer program and am getting various bits of it to work, then today I saw this article in infoweek:
This was really exciting to me as it validated my thinking and what I am doing with my google based application.
There are a ton of really exiting applications, and hence business opportunities, out there using google, ebay amazon, Yahoo et al. I am writing one of these but an hour of brainstorming here with the guys at work came up with a whole host of others. Using these web services is not difficult, heck even I could get it to work, and then your imagination is the limit.
I think that the next killer application will be based on top of these huge “platforms” of google, ebay, amazon and yahoo. It may be just using one of them or it may be joining them together in a big network, or even both. I can certainly see all of these possibilities.
So this is a call to all entrepreneurial developers out there; go and look at the google, ebay and amazon web services and think about what really exciting apps can be built using them!
