It's exciting time to be in the web community or just to be a web consumer. Three years ago when the Web 2.0 era started to pick up, we got a glimpse to the potential of the web in how it can change our lives.
But in the last months, we really start to see how all the different pieces and technologies are coming together to finally create a connected user experience. Products like Hulu Desktop, Twitter, Google Wave, Facebook Connect and the iPhone combined with now more mature technologies such as HTML 5 and Ajax adre finally bringing us the consumers the ultimate user experience.
The foundations of such experience are: Desktop like UI, seamless integration between services and real time communication.
This year we finally saw the mobile promise gets realized with great web experience on the iPhone and now Android.
We finally saw the borders between TV and web video completely blend.
We finally start to see the concepts of federated identity and data portability come into place.
All these things together won't solve the world hunger or bring world wide peace, but they will change the way we live our daily lives and communicate with other people.
It is a very exciting time to live in.
