Web 2.0 Innovation Map

Ryan Williams from Fourio wrote in email: “I wanted to share a new Google Maps mashup I’ve released today, the Web 2.0 Innovation Map. I’ve taken 200 (so far) applications and plotted them on a map to see how development is distributed across the US and Canada. It’s an interesting way to chronicle the Web 2.0 trend.”

It is indeed interesting. A lot of apps I haven’t followed (and missing a lot that I have) so I can’t speak to how thoroughly it covers Web 2.0 as I think of it. (There are a lot of different aspects to Web 2.0, so this is going to be hard to do.) But it’s really interesting to see how many of the apps Ryan has selected are not in Silicon Valley.
