Should Software Follow the Sauce Business

Today I met someone that introduced me to the TED website. Supposedly, it costs a lot of money to attend these conferences. There is an interesting video from Malcom Gladwell the author of Tipping Point.

It is interesting since software for so long has been a one size fits all solution. With the emergence of platforms such as facebook, open social, etc people finally have a chance to tailor webpages and applications to meet their unique needs. I was in the enterprise world for a long time and we often thought we knew the best way to pick and choose which features should belong in a solution. It seems like that is changing rapidly in areas such as social networking with platforms such as facebook and Open Social, and it will force changes in several other areas as well.
