Triberr 1.1: Interview with Triberr co-founder Dan Cristo

April 7, 2011

Triberr

We all have aspirations. Dreams. Like the singer of Tears for Fears croons, everyone wants to rule the world.

Making it happen is another story. Sharing the idea is as far as most people get. Getting people excited about the potential of that idea – enough for them to roll up their sleeves and pitch in or reach for their checkbook – is the actual first step in making it happen.

These are the stories that aspiring netpreneurs and entrepreneurs need to hear and read about. That’s why I connected with Triberr co-founder Dan Cristo. To get him to share how he and Dino Dogan jump started Triberr.

Thanks to Dan Cristo for sharing his time and answers with us.

Unlike those quick to ignore it’s potential, I’m willing to give Triberr the benefit of the doubt – until it’s shortcomings overcome it’s potential. But it doesn’t have to go down like that.

Before we can get into what signals Social Web 3.0 as the next milestone in the evolution of the web, let’s review Web 2.0.

Web 2.0

Try to imagine this with me: the sound of an angry (blue) bird being launched.
