Web 2.0 – Will the Momentum Continue?

Yesterday, I attended an event Web 2.0-will the momentum continue 2006 & beyond?, organized by SDForum. The panel had a couple of people from the venture community, two Web 2.0 startups and an industry analyst. The session was lively and very informative. Seth Sternberg shared Meebo’s startup experience and had some good advice for startups.

Charlene Li, Principal Analyst, Forrester Research gave a few trends she sees as important for Web 2.0 to make inroads into the Enterprise.
