I read this a few weeks ago – my initial thought is that it is a good visual depiction of how immature this market is and I anticipate a lot of changes and consolidation to occur in this area as the viable business models and products shake out.

I agree 100% Elizabeth. The products are still immature and the ones that claim to do everything, don’t really do it all well. Most of the products are good at 1-2 things, not everything.

For example, even this site, is good at a lot of things but it lacks wiki functionality which is a big piece that I’d eventually like.
