4 emerging trends of the Real-Time web
A great article by Bernard Moon who talks about 4 emerging trends of the real time web. Real time search got a huge boost in the last few weeks as Microsoft and Google were scrambling to sign deals with twitter for enhanced search results. Although real time search in still in it’s infancy, it’s already creating waves as many news stories are reported first on micro blogging sites like twitter. There’s always a lot of hype surrounding Google products, but with Google Wave I feel the hype is deserved as it could transform many aspects of the web. Besides real time collaboration and real time search, two other emerging real time web phenomena, according to Bernard Moon, are real time analytics and real time commerce. It’s a great article that every web and social media enthusiast must read.
