A catch phrase will go here soon.

Web 2.0/AJAX nonsense–make it stop!!!

3/6/2006

1. AJAX is not a business–it’s a technology.
2. AJAX is the web catching up with where desktop software was in 1985.
3. Web 2.0 is a buzzword designed primarily for people who don’t know what they’re talking about (or to get people to pay $3,000 to go to a conference).
4. 90% of the companies in this Web 2.0 image will not be in business in three years, regardless of how cute their logos are.

Hello, my name is Jason. Welcome to my blog on the interwebs. You can reach me on twitter @jason and by email at jason@inside.com. My Skype is jasoncalacanis, and my mobile phone is 310-456-4900.

I only pick up numbers I recognize, and in terms of emailing me, the best strategy is to write short, blunt and to the point requests. I can quickly respond to short messages, and many times I simply don't have the time to read five page pitches. In terms of taking meetings, I only do that after reviewing an actual product (not a business plan). So, the best time to ping me is when you have mockups or an alpha site. I don't read business plans, and I've never written one.

Other twitter accounts you can follow: Inside.com, Ticker, This Week in Startups and LAUNCH Festival
