My collegue David Chou does a great job of distilling the new platform, here is an excerpt... 

Collectively, the rich cluster of "Web 2.0" sites on the internet form a services foundation from which applications and functionalities can be built upon, without needing any additional dedicated infrastructure. As a result, this collection of cloud-based services form a new kind of "platform" to create a new breed of applications. David Chou provides a perspective on what “Web as a Platform” means in the Web 2.0 world, and a generalized view of the cloud-based platform. Check out the full blog entry here.

We're all so busy that we sometimes don't have the time to check out new technology.  However, this time please take a minute and check this one out.  A while back Microsoft bought this great little company TellME.  Today I had a chance to use it and I'm BLOWN AWAY.  Instead of using your cell phone 411 service, try calling 1-800-555-TELL (8355) or send a text message to 83556 (I put in  Sam's Club in Glendora, CA) or pull up on your mobile device.  You can do a free directory search OR get sports scores OR a host of other things.  Here is a link to some tips for using the service as well:

I now have a TellME contact entry that I can handsfree dial from my car!

Sometimes it's the small things that make the biggest difference.
