How Many Web 2.0 Applications?!

I’m still in shock after stumbling upon Feedmyapp (“a Web 2.0 Directory with the best and latest web 2.0 sites, daily update“) and seeing how many Web 2.0 applications there are now out there. Gotoweb runs a similar service.

It reminded me of the Build Your Own Web 2.0 Application Using Fluff and Hot Air blog post I read a few years back.

It’s a wonder any of us are getting any work done! I know these things are meant to help us work more efficiently, but just deciding which ones suit us could quite easily eat up your working week. It’s giving me a headache!

When I get a chance (!!) I’m planning to have a go at reclaiming some time and improving my self discipline using LeechBlock. This is a “simple productivity tool designed to block those time-wasting sites that can suck the life out of your working day“.

I’ll let you know what it feels like when the leeches are removed.

  1. Thanks for the pointer Phil….

    I’ve got a big bookcase full of books at home and quite often when people come round they’ll ask the classic question “Have you read all of these?”. Of course the answer is “no”, but I have read quite a lot, browsed most of the rest and fully intend to have read all of them before I die (though it’s very unlikely I will!).

    That said….”have you tried out all your 1,000 odd Web apps??”. You seem to have reviewed most.

    Now I feel like I’m just not using my time efficiently!

  2. To be honest, I’ve tried out a fair number of them – I’ve got accounts with many of the social networks for example (and all but Facebook remain unused). I don’t try out everything, partly because I don’t have time and partly because once you’ve tried one ‘xyz’ application you’ve pretty much tried them all.
