Web technology in 2006

Good post by Richard MacManus on Read/WriteWeb on the main web technology trends in 2006. I like his list. As one of the commenters says he would like to add the emergence and adoption of virual worlds to the list. Agree on that one. I think two other trends should also be on the list:

  1. Online music is general is taking off. I do not know any figures but I feel services such as Last.fm, Pandora and Rhapsody are going to change music consumption worldwide.
  2. The trend of “Brand You” is leading people to want to control their online identity. I have written about that earlier. It leads to a number of new services such as The Internet Address Book, Ziki, claimID, Contactlink and others.
