Is CollectiveX about to trump LinkedIn, Yahoo360 (nee Clubs), Ecademy and all those other social networking sites? I've seen so many of these huge visions fall by the way side- remember ePeople? No, nor does DNS. It's so hard to work out what the secret of success might be and the space is full of so many niche players- seen Where are You Now (WAYN)? My fear for them is that the web 2.0 phenomenon puts the emphasis on loosely coupled features rather than centralising them on a single site.
CollectiveX looks great, looks workable and indeed, Michael Arrington of TechCrunch has espoused it as what LinkedIn should have always been- quite an accolade.
Is it all enough? Time will tell.
