Jochen Krisch reported from the 2010 Next Web Conference in Amsterdam this week.
One of the highlights of the Next Web Conference was the presentation from Amazon CTO Werner Vogels, who has taken a look 4-5 years forward at the future of web applications (“The Future of Web Building Blocks”):
Werner will show how new services that that are coming into existence today in areas such telco, geo, media, graphing, bigdata, are going to drive development of applications that could not be built before."
The Next Weblog has summarized the presentation:
Vogels went through a number of infrastructure cloud-based services including Drop.io (file sharing), Panda (security), SimpleGeo (location), Animoto (video), Twilio (VoIP), Echo (real-time conversation), Amazon Mechanical Turk (crowdsourced human labor), Social Gold (virtual currency), Charify (payments), OpenX (advertising), 80Legs and github (development)."
