CollectiveX Launches Today

CollectiveXIs 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.
