Absolutely agree! Not only from the viewpoint of business competion, but also for the Internet resources efficiency.

What is a expecting Web2.0 Internet? It means a totally packaged service solution provided by one or two Big Bands, or distributed services on hundreds of single sites for users to customize their own service suite? I believe, comforming suite, but not distributing service will be web2.0 direction in the nearly future. And what the companies think of themselves? From the Big Bands sight, a conformation service will be main furture of a Web2.0 internet, by self development, by acquisition, or how about some kinds of OEM?

No matter what, I don't hope Web2.0 Internet gonna be the place where I still have to ppload pics to flickr then publish by blogger or Typepad/Wordpress, then tag it by or digging on digg, then search to confirm if Google/Yahoo index my post.......again and again........One stop solution, a web2.0 internet what I'm looking for.
