Orli Yakuel - About me
I'm passionate about Web 2.0. I love social media, and I enjoy working with web & mobile companies. I am often told that I seem to live on the Web, and I do have to admit that getting online often feels to me like I am coming home.

Go2web20.net, the largest online directory for Web 2.0 applications worldwide, is a labor of love for me. I enjoy keeping myself on the forefront of the ever-evolving Web 2.0 industry, and communicating with the industry movers and shakers.

My blog and the Go2web20.net directory enjoy an international reach and a diverse audience. I believe this provides me with a unique perspective on what's hot, what's not, and why.

Having worked as an analyst for AOL, I also have the benefit of familiarity with the media corporate view of the Web 2.0 playing field. My responsibilities included identifying promising startups and key technologies in the Web 2.0 field in the US and in Israel.  I’ve often played an important part in connecting Israeli startups with US-based companies.

My personal belief is that it’s all about providing value for the community. The world of online applications is extremely competitive, and understanding what is it that users want, in terms of usability, social features and messaging are often the difference between a business' failure and a runaway success. With competition just click away - companies often don't get a second chance, so it’s important to build this approach into the startup’s DNA.

As a consultant, I help the clients I work with to streamline their products and launch process, helping them stand out from the crowd.
