As Jeremiah Owyang said on his Twitter account, “Web 2.0 Summit has become the premiere place for companies to announce products.” #W2S was the top 5 trending topic for a while on Twitter yesterday, and we’d like to explain what all the buzz was about as well as briefly recap who’s launching what at Web 2.0 Summit this year. Thanks to Joylyn Tanner (@jtannerama) for helping to pull this post together!
• MySpace CEO Owen Van Natta announced that MySpace has partnered with all major labels to launch the Web’s most comprehensive archive of music videos. Also announced yesterday, MySpace is launching the “MySpace Artist Dashboard,” which will give music artists data about their fanbase on the site including geographic and demographic breakdowns.
