Want to make money?

Build an open, ajax-based web service - if you do it right, you will be bought out within a year or so. I read posts like this ALL THE TIME. This comment is the current mood:

A senior exec at Yahoo! told me this summer at a cocktail party that "we are thinking that $25M is about the right price for these web services things".
I know it's not that simple - ie, a neat google maps mashup isn't enough. Find a way that makes sense to integrate google chat with blogger; build a web service that integrates blogs with review engines ("Judys book" may be going there) or even craigslist; etc..etc.
