The live Web

Jeff Javier had a statement that was stuck in my head for a while: live changes everything - again. Together with the recent post on creative destruction by John Borthwick, they point to a real opportunity that is happening right now: the emergence of the live web.

Live web is most powerful when centered around events: a plane crash, a football match, a party, a concert etc. That is why I think live web is intertwined with events web, of which their interaction holds the most interesting possibilities. Event search for example, is made more powerful when the things it is searching for is live, i.e. where can I find the most fun party to go to right now?
Fred Wilson hinted at similar conclusions how live and event web generates more social interactions.

Without events as a focal point, live web becomes too much noise (See Justin.TV as an example). We don't know how to cope with the tsunami of information that is going to be unleashed by the live web. We can't filter through the data to find what is most interesting and relevant to us, at this point in time.
