My idea of what critical mass means is when things start to happen exponentially. It seems like something valid in theory, let web traffic grow organically and eventually you will reach critical mass(aka a lot of users/visitors). but there are too many variables on the net to keep that from happening. there is too much media diversion going on craigslist,myspace,facebook are just a few you can't read an article or newspaper without a reference to craigslist, other websites that actually have value to pass on don't get any media attention. hmmmmm internet starting to resemble cable tv? A great way to counter this diversion is for everybody on the planet to get their own website. start using professional networks to help spread the word about their websites and services. I found a great one: Merchantcircle. you can actually email people you dont know to try and make a connection...what a great idea. come on folks, how many friends do you really have? done selling your family yet? ok myspace is not professional so business owners can use to get a business website. There is an internet real estate war going on. big media is still trying to keep down anything they don't have an interest in. Wake up America!! see

[...] TechCrunch has a story up about the ins-and-outs of building a web application in three days with little money. These days with open source tools and web-two-point-owe type open APIs and frameworks, it is easy for a dedicated team of developers, designers and PR/marketing people to bring out something that may just be the next hit of the social media world. The flipside of that coin, however, is that there will be a proliferation of so many social networking/web-two-point-owe type of tools and sites to choose from, it will be hard to distinguish which ones are worth engaging with or signing up for and which ones will just be contributing to social networking fatigue [...]

Social networking is a fun way for teenagers to torture each other and for adults to stay somewhat current in their friends’ lives without having to call them. It’s also an interesting way to discover indie bands. But as a web-of-the-future platform I think it’s largely a fad.
