2007 - Year of Enterprise Mashups?

Tony Karrer

I think that Dion is a bit aggressive in his prediction of prime-time adoption in 2007, but this is certainly a trend that we will all be seeing in the next couple of years. I just saw an article/post by Dion Hinchcliffe - Enterprise mashups get ready for prime-time. In it, he talks about various tools that are coming forward as a means to be able to pull applications together using mash-ups. I saw IBM's tool when I was moderating a Web 2.0 event in Los Angeles.

Buzz words for 2007

Learning with e's

Running under the title of Schott's Alamanac , the Times newspaper today carries an article about all of the new buzz words that have supposedly been introduced in 2007 and suggests that these are the words that will define the year. But some of them go back a few years, so although they may now define 2007, some may actually also define the first few years of this century, I think.
