Milestone – Web 2.0 achievements in 12 months


Many new findings after 12 months web 2.0 expedition…

On my journey through the world wide web I have discovered some interesting web 2.0 services like yasni.de – a search engine for people. This service wants to provide all public information about a person – it could be a good idea, if you want to protect your good reputation on the web. But I can’t really look through the system… the search result often vary in the number and some results are identical, but I didn’t find a way to merge them. My VIP-Rank (authenticity) vary all the time between 193 to 196 – I don’t know why, but Paris Hilton stays solid at 9 VIP-Rank :o)

Some similar services are spock.com, myonid.de and rapleaf.com – the preamble of their Terms of Service is just great:

“By using Rapleaf, you agree to act ethically and honestly. You believe that it is more profitable to be ethical. You want to make the world a better place by doing good, not harm. You agree to treat people kindly.”

and you directly feel that they just want to make big money with your trust and help ;o)

I also tried some social network sites like unddu.de, lokalisten.de, stayfriends.de and myspace.com, but my favorite is still facebook.com. It’s just fun to find lost old schoolmate, college friends and loose contacts. But it is also frightening how much time you can spend surfing, building and searching in all those web 2.0 services…

And here is the development of the google search result for my person specific keywords:

Search for 01.07.2007 01.01.2008
