Stan Schroeder writes "How do Web 2.0 applications and services really compare to desktop applications? What conditions do Web 2.0 startups have to meet to make sure they can't easily be replaced (because of zero switching cost) by another application, or to make sure that they add enough value over their desktop counterparts to be competitive? The answer lies in the very definition of Web 2.0 and the multitude of possibilities it provides. Simply using the web as a platform is not going to cut it any more — the community is the key to the growth of almost all big Web 2.0 success stories."
