Gerade kann man sich die Zukunft ja wieder mal aussuchen. Hier deshalb ein paar der spannendsten Denkanstöße für 2007:
Das Lightspeed Venture Partners Blog schreibt unter dem Motto "E-Commerce 2.0 arrives":
"Google’s search revenues continue to grow at 70-80% growth rates. Yet the public ecommerce companies‘ revenues are growing at “only” 25-30% at best. But almost every Google click is going to an online transaction somewhere - people still aren’t using search advertising for branding purposes. So what is filling the gap? (...)
A lot of it is from the next generation of ecommerce companies, still private but doing revenues in the $10s and sometimes $100s of millions that have quietly been growing at 50-100% per year through the last few dark years. Companies like Zappos, Art.com, Mercantila, Netshops, CSN Stores, Backcountry, Bodybuilding.com, Toolking, US Auto Parts and dozens more have grown up, mostly away from Silicon Valley, and many without the need for venture capital."

Im ProgrammableWeb gibts die "Top 5 Mashup Questions for 2007":
"1. Who’s making money on mashups? We’ve now seen cases where APIs can deliver directly to the bottom line given that over 50% of Salesforce.com transactions come via their API and more than 47% of eBay listings get posted through their API. We have also seen that APIs can create significant mindshare such as with Google Maps and Amazon S3. But there’s still plenty of unanswered questions with regards to business models for API providers, developers and intermediaries." (pick!t)
