If you really knew me...

If you really knew me.....

you'd know I like strong coffee (with cream and sugar), comic books, Seinfeld (well to be more exact Larry David), computers and any technology. You'd know I can't stand phony people (they make me uncomfortable), cabbage rolls, and wearing the colour red. If you really knew me, you'd know I feel depressed sometimes, and right now I'm not feeling very well, I don't know why, I just don't, and I'm tired.

My advice to WEB 2.0 developers.

The following is my list of advice to WEB 2.0 developers:

  1. I don't care how many protocols you support.
  2. I don't care how many users you have.
  3. I don't care how many projects you are working on.
  4. No , I don't want to sign up for your beta.
  5. No, I don't want to sign up.
  6. I do want to know what your service provides.
  7. I do want to try it out without a big sign up procedure, giving out my email and getting another newsletter every week, telling me how wonderful you are and all the great new features you've implemented. If it's so great I'll use it and I will know all the new features.
  8. No, I do not want to download your toolbar, app, or thing, even though it may be spyware free and work really great and I can't live without it.
  9. I don't care about your service if you aren't taking new users yet. I might check you out, if you have something for me to try, otherwise buzz off until the service is ready.
  10. I do want to know what's in it for me.
  11. Get me hooked on a quality service before expecting me to sign up or download your app
If you want to look at a couple of Web 2.0 services that have done it right check out digg.com and youtube.com. What sets youtube and digg above the rest is, as soon as you visit their sites you know what they are about and you are immediately using them, no sign up, no downloading, no installing. Services that can be used right away have a huge advantage over those that must be signed up for, or downloaded, especially if you don't know right away, exactly what the service is. Yes, gmail has to be signed up for, but come on, who didn't know exactly what gmail was and what the benefits were before it was even available to them. Let's face it, if you're a Google you have a better shot at getting the average users attention, but if the quality isn't there it won't matter. The most important feature of any Web 2.0 company is the quality of their product. If you have a quality product, please don't annoy your consumers away, if you don't, go back to the drawing board.
