Wired: Build a Web 2.0 Startup!

The September 2006 issue of Wired Magazine includes one of their "useful" StartUp-O-TronTM algorithms for picking what your next, hot, Web 2.0 startup should/could be.


This really takes all the fun out of building your business model. Ah, well.


Choose one or more from each column:



















































































Market Hyped Tech Service Architecture
Dating AJAX Recommendations Podcast
Reviews Streaming Messaging Auction
Gambling Ruby on Rails Entertainment Blog
Maps BitTorrent Publishing VodCast
Porn RFID Buying/Selling Social Network
Music Wireless Search Store
Gaming Flash Discussion Wiki
Video Java Aggregation Community
News VOIP Data Mining Sharing
Photo GPS Portal
Productivity RSS Utility Software
Sports Tagging

Wired Example:



  • It's a PHOTO site that uses TAGGING and RSS to do SEARCH in a COMMUNITY. We call it FLICKR.


They missed a few buzzwords. I’d add:



  • For Market: File Sharing, Real Estate, Finance

  • For Hyped Tech: P2P, Mashup


Brian Berliner Quick Example:



  • It's a VIDEO site that uses STREAMING, FLASH and TAGGING to do ENTERTAINMENT in a SOCIAL NETWORK. We call it YOUTUBE.


Add one of your own to the Comments section. Perhaps the TechCrunch guys could start each review out with one of these generated tag-lines! Enjoy...


For an automated tool to do something similar, and more, try bullshitr.
