Bill Burnham on Google Base

Interested in what a really smart guy thinks about Google Base and the end of walled gardens? Go here.

Bill writes, "In 1995, the average user couldn’t spell “Internet”, let alone figure out set up and run their own Internet site. Even if they did set up their own site, the lack of any mechanisms for other users to easily find a site made operating one’s own site a pointless exercise as it was like building a billboard on deserted island in the middle of the Pacific.

In 2005, things are a bit different. Not only has the average Internet user become much more sophisticated, but several trends are rapidly coalescing to deliver what could be a “knock out” blow to the Walled Gardens."
