Bubble Burst - web 2.0 for sale

In the past two years we've seen over 1154 web 2.0 start-ups, based on the logo count of GoWeb20. Unfortunately, not all start-ups make it which created a new type of commodity: web 2.0 sites for sale.

As reported by Techcrunch earlier this month, Web 2.0 for sale is a marketplace for Web 2.0 sites, creating an alternative for the typical Google/ Ebay exit for entrepreneurs in dire need of cash.

The board was created by Edgio, and offers a publishing platform for programming code, domains, prototypes and of course, the complete website suites. $10 will get you an ad for 30 days.

On the site you can find listings for as little as a few bucks or as much as $1.25 Million, as in the case of PayByCellphone that is selling its complete operation.

Other message boards in this niche include Venture Board and eBay.

We are definitely on our way to another bubble. Letting someone else besides the traditional VCs lead investments in new media companies will change the course as they would go for strategic investments only, not hype.

As unlikely as it seems from the outset, I think traditional media companies (TMC) will ultimately rule the web 2.0/New Media space. TMCs will surely become the next VCs.
