web 2.0 and DesktopTwo


Please note that this is an archived post, so links, code and the communicated message might be outdated. YMMV

In these days, we hear about the phenomena "web 2.0" more and more often. To make it short, web 2.0 is a phrase made to describe second generation network generic services on the Internet. It is not like some might think it is, a second version of the Internet. And the subject for this post is, you've guessed it, a web 2.0 service.

Searched the forums of Diskusjon.no , the forum for the largest norwegian hardware community, Hardware.no , and stumbled over a link to something called Desktoptwo
. I clicked the link mentioned and there I was. Desktoptwo
offers a online desktop with over 1GB of disk space.

It includes everything a normal desktop has, background image, icons, IM services, desktop look-a-like mail interface and much more. I am not advertising about it, but if you are interested in new web services, try it ;)
