Our Space, Our Web

The announcement of Google Video brings to mind some thoughts. We are almost to the point where we do not need to own any web space. It is all provided for us in open communities. The amount of space necessary when considering Web hosting becomes trivial. All that is needed is a link to the content residing within your Web Community where your house can always be open - a VERY spacious house at that.

Open Communities:
Images: Hello or Flickr,
Audio/Video: OurMedia.org or Google Video
Blogging/News: Blogger.com or Bloglines
It seems that the Web is becoming everything we hoped for in the Dot Com era. Albeit, with a much more realistic outlook this time around.

Global communication realized.

Excellent discussion on web page hosting. I bookmarked your blog. I have my own web page hosting blog if you want to take a look.
