World Largest Commercial wiki Launched

ZDNet’s Richard ManManus Reported:

eBay and JotSpot have just released a new community wiki – making it almost certainly the world’s largest wiki platform for a commercial website (Wikipedia is bigger, but it’s non-commercial). eBay Wiki is described as “a collection of fact-based articles written and maintained by eBay Community members” and is powered by JotSpot’s innovative wiki technology.

Great News!

Kevin Rose is 23rd in Business 2.0’s 50 people that matter

Kevin Rose (The guy from Tech.tv) & Jay Adelson are really making a history in Social news thru Digg.com. They are at 23rd on the list of 50 persons that matter according to Business 2.0. To put this in perspective, Bill Gates is 21st on the list & Oprah Winfrey is 38th on the list. Wow, that’s an achivement.

I must admit, that I wouldn’t have predicted this one year back. On the subject, I scored an invitation to Digg.com V3 launch Party but couldn’t attend it as I was in Chicago listening to one of my other favorites, David Heinemeier Hanssnon, Who is also on the Business 2.0’s list of 50 persons that matter.

David Heinmeir Hansson – Business 2.0’s 50 People that matters

David Heinmier Hansson is 34th in the list of Business 2.0 50 people that matter. That’s certainly a true recognition of the impact that Ruby on Rails is making on Web Development.

Martin Fowler mentioned in his keynote on Rails Conf 2006 that whether or not, Rails succeeds in the end or not, It already has made a huge difference in the way people think of Web development.

O’Reilly announcing that they are hosting the next years Rails conference (in Portland, Oregon) is another sign of the increasing importance of Ruby on Rails.
