- Over the last several weeks, Iâ€™ve been on several phone pitches from west-coast companies that are looking to be the â€śflickr of XXXXâ€ť or â€ślike del.icio.us but YYYYâ€ť or â€śthe Digg killerâ€ť. It got me thinking â€“ how many people outside of the valley have ever heard of these companies? I asked a bunch of local (Philly-area) acquaintances and the answer came back loud and clear: none â€“ nada - zip. People here have barely heard of Myspace and Craigslist â€“ let alone any of the â€śhotâ€ť Web 2.0 companies.
