The Web 2.0 List You Were Looking For

This Web 2.0 companies list might be a a tongue-in-cheek look at the hype of Web 2.0 but still, its worth a read. There are web solutions on his list that took me weeks and even months to track down – this list would have saved me a lot of time.

A number of these have helped me recently: cocomment, 30boxes, ourmedia. Librarything looks good too. Skype of course.

Which ones have helped you? And has anyone tried Ekklesia for churches?

  • Imago Dei Community (Blue Like Jazz author Donald Miller’s church) uses Ekklesia:

    i’m a skyper and librarything.
    have you seen this?
    it’s either really lame or really superb. i haven’t decided which.

  • bob says:

    Ekklesia is cool, but probably prohibitively expensive for new churches/small churches/simple churches. I’ve found that Joomla open source CMS totally rocks, is easy to install and manage and it’s… free!
    Check it out:
    Our church website uses it.

    I’m using Ta-Da lists from It’s pretty cool.

    even a bit more powerful (from the same company) is Backpack… it has literally changed my life! 🙂

    link to backpack here

  • Paul Bowman says:

    I just started looking into Backpack and it does seem very useful.

  • Bob,
    Ekklesia has a Church Planting option that is priced for new/small churches. You should contact Church Plant Media who offers the deal to church planters.

    zookoda? – yes, aussie app that i downloaded a month ago in the hope of turning my blog into a newsletter and tracking it better
    i might use it one day.

  • Allthough I have requested a demo for Ekklesia, I think it will be quit expensive. In the meantime I try to use WordPress.

  • Nate says:

    Ekklesia looks interesting. FellowshipTech is another platform for large church website ministry. Truewell a third. I am waiting for some folks to get together and make a truely opensource church management program. I just got asked to redo my churches website. Perhaps it will become that. Until then I have to mention drupal IMHO the best Open Source CMS around.

    I recently discovered your blog and really like it. However one thing I did *not* find helpful with this post was the Porn 2.0 section of the link you advertised. I’d suggest being more careful and discerning about content you find and link to on the web. I know it’s ultimately up to each individual to make those decisions when visiting websites, but I find it a bit disturbing that you had no problem linking to that page with no warning, or made no attempt to discuss what was significant about that page without encouraging viewers to view the full list. Just a thought from a fellow Christian – I mean no disrespect. I’m interested to know what you think about these issues – i.e., online pornography, best online practices, and Christian responsibilies pertaining to website creation and information dissemination.

    tsk- thanks. Library thing rocks!
    I would be nowhere near web 2.0 without your linking help. please keep it up!
