Is the Web 2.0 bubble popping?
If there were a theme to today's WSA Investment Forum, it would have to be the battle for online advertising dollars. A host of presenting companies -- Mixxer, Ripl, Smilebox, Treemo and Yodio to name a few -- all are hoping to take a sliver of the online advertising pie. But for the first time since the dawn of the Web 2.0 era, I heard repeated comments about whether there was enough online ad money to go around. (Of course, Mark Anderson of Strategic News Service set the tone at the opening panel discussion in which he questioned the viability of ad-supported businesses). But throughout the day, concerns popped up.
