towards a more social web

Lots of buzz building around Web 2.0, and I’m watching it unfold with eager anticipation; eHub keeps a running log of Web 2.0 apps. When hunger pangs hit me last night, I wandered online for a place to eat. I found the wiki-ish web app www.addyourown.com to be helpful, but notably lacking in my area. Some Web 2.0 apps I’ve started using recently include: rememberthemilk.com, basecamphq.com, writely.com, and suprglu.com. Have been using flickr.com for some of my pix, with more of them hosted at fotki.com (not so Web 2.0 ish).

What I’d love to see is a web app that’ll make the T-mobile Hotspot listing (at the ubiquitous Starbucks, and FedExKinkos and Borders too) more useful, listing not only locations and hours (on a Google map, too? is that asking for too much?), but also number of power outlets, tables, and chairs. While I love meetups with people there to chat, I also like to get online and work there too.

    Why don’t you go to http://www.wayfaring.com and check it out – may be there’s enough of demands to start a hotspot locators.

    Have you seen the Google Maps integrated with photo albums on Fotki.com?
    I love to track my summer trips there!

    As for the hotspots listing – would be cool, if somebody could make this with FotkiMaps…
