In Making Money in the Mashup Economy, GigaOm writer Anne Zelenka enumerates the ways that ome of the participants at the latest Mashup Camp have been making money.Â She includes:
- Elastic Computing (on demand services from the cloud)
- Aggregated Data Access
- Mashup Development Tools
- and…. mashup’s themselves.
I’m surprised at the failure of companies to monetize access to websites. I would think that the services provided by an Amazon, or a Google should be monetizable in other ways, other than simply through related sales of advertising or product.
