Still Surfing the Web 2.0 Wave – Brightkite, Orgoo and Plurk

There’s no end in sight in the Web 2.0 revolution.

Here’s a look at three Web 2.0 newbies that have been wow-ing the Singapore web community in recent weeks:

brightkite

Brightkite – Location-based social networking that uses a Web interface and SMS messaging to log in your location and broadcast to your network of friends. The Denver-based company was featured in this year’s Web 2.0 Conference in San Francisco and is currently considered by some as the most promising startup in the location-based mobile networking space.

orgoo

Orgoo – Online communications startup that merges email, IM and video chatting onto a single platform, or what Los Angeles-based Orgoo calls “your communications cockpit”. The best thing is that Orgoo also integrates your existing email and IM applications (and your contacts!) so it’s a one-stop access to your online communications. This application is going to be indispensible for some.

plurk

Plurk – The current flava of the Singapore blogosphere, Plurk takes Twitter-like microblogging and mashes it with a visual timeline, viral-type “karma” activity and a huge dose of attitude. I especially love how it brings sense of style and design to technology with its Mambo-esque branding.

My money’s on Orgoo.
