I was about to post a similar comment to my post before - advocating a
"Whitelist" of such 'quality' services. But I held it back, because it
seems to be a very difficult problem to solve.
These are some issues with whitelisting web20 services:
- to avoid digg-style hype it would need some sort of authority, which
goes against the 'feel' of web20
- requires a lot of work to have quality (i.e. time for reviewing, etc.)
- is difficult to provide impartial information and not follow trends
Nevertheless such a body would be very useful - especially for cases
such as the "feedburner" buyout
- users can help users deal with privacy issues
- forum can share information on how to facilitate easy-out's
- forum could suggest alternatives for easy-in's
- body could assists new services to reach an audience and critical-mass
