Coolest Technologies Demoed at Web 2.0 - No. 2 Zude SocialMix

Easily the coolest-looking technology eWEEK witnessed on the show floor, SocialMix is a super mashup of social networking sites. Want to access  Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn and Twitter from a single canvas? Zude SocialMix enables that in a secure fashion. Don't ask how it does that, given the complex nature of the permissions capabilities between social networks and the various language protocols this involves. eWEEK has seen the future of social user interfaces and it is SocialMix.

The Web 2.0 Expo is traditionally a breeding ground for new technology demonstrations and this year's event in San Francisco was no exception. Here are six of the more memorable technologies, most of which are social and collaborative in nature, demonstrated on the Moscone West show floor April 23 through April 25. You'll notice half of them are online collaboration tools that would look great as part of larger feature sets at Cisco Systems, IBM or Microsoft, which begs the question: Which will remain independent one year from now?
