Web 2.0 is all about improving a visitors experience visit to your website.
Back in September 2005, O'Reilly and MediaLive International noted during a brainstorming session "that far from having "crashed", the web was more important than ever, with exciting new applications and sites popping up with surprising regularity."
Those new applications & sites have been popping up all over the place, think Facebook, Digg, Techorati, Stumbleupon, all of the Google apps to name just a very few of those available today.
Now a new application Qassia has come to life and takes a slightly different approach than most of the other applications available. It exists essentially to provide backlinks to the websites you post 'intel' about. Think about this for a moment, every web owner/affiliate wants to have their website found in the first 5-10 results on a search page (the first 3 with double results would be even better).
There's no cost or need to supply a backlink. The more 'intel' you provide related to your site, the more credit you get, the better your site(s) will rank which is, in itself, reason to post 'intel'.
