Australian IT : Testing the Web 2.0 water

I spotted the following article this week at Australian IT : Testing the Web 2.0 water.

I was surprised to see a great many of the aussie web entrepreneurs missed in the coverage.

Where were the 2Web Crew? They were conspicuous by the absence.

So, let me do my bit and shine a light on some of the stuff I know.

Paul Montgomery blogs about a successful meetup on Thursday in Melbourne, which featured Ben Barren.

Martin Wells is compiling a list of Web 2,0 activities in Australia, as well as arranging 2Web dinners.

And some of the guys doing it downunder include

Kevin Leversee - Pandora Squared

Nick McNaughton - Zookoda

Nik Cubrilovic - Omnidrive

Michael Liubinskas - Zapr

Chris Saad - Touchstone

** Minti

I'm sure that there are many many many more doing amazing things out there. Let's spread the word. 

Oh, and we're having a panel discussion at Tech.Ed on WEB vNEXT. I wont steal Nigel's thunder, but there are going to be some great speakers on the panel.

** Update: Fixed some obvious spelling errors and added Minti

    hey there – thx for the pointer on minti.

    ive added it to the post

  3. Frank-  We just flew from Sydney into Manila to work on a really big project for around community.

    Can’t say much but as I write this the Aussie guys are teaching in class to industry leaders on how and why this shift is so important.

  4. Lame article, treating Web 2.0 as a technology rather than as a cultural shift. It is typical to see that IBM won’t be rolling out Web 2.0 for another 18 months!

    There have been a bunch of web 2.0 conferences spring up now as well, no idea who these ‘experts’ are speaking at them.
