Convergence of the Web Applications

While I have argued before with folks about how I don’t want all of my life to be merged (or converged or mind-melded) into one device (read, cellphone), it does appear that this is the case for all of the new, emerging apps and services that are in the Web 2.0 camp.

Just today, I have learned that the Wikispaces site now allows for WAY EASY integration of media from such sources as YouTube, Odeo and MySpace. I was so happy when I figured out how to upload and link to an mp3 in the wiki and now, I can add a video greeting from Hellodeo or embed other media with a simple copy-paste-done. Cool.

And, I found Dabble, which appears to be a way to “collect” video from around the web (Google Video, YouTube, Ourmedia, Internet Archive, etc) and connect with folks who have the same interests. Hmmm…more to consider.

Of course there is always SuprGlu for keeping my little Flickr, Blogger, del.icio.us, lastFM self together in one place.

Why do I like convergence on the web but not on my belt or in my backpack or on my iPod, even?
