Go2web20 – Web 2.0 Tools and Applications
http://www.go2web20.net/

For the past two years, Go2web20 has been one of the biggest web2.0 directories out there. They built this application to enable people to stay up to date with all the new & hot services that are born daily into the web. In many cases, Go2web20 has been the first to report the existence of a new application. Today Go2web20 includes over 2,700 services and more are uploaded everyday. They also make sure to disable services that are no longer working and by doing this we ensure a more useful and enjoyable experience when performing a search. They believe that this is a natural behavior and logical progress – not all the services that you see here will live forever, but they’ll serve you for as long as they live.

Market Potential Index for Emerging Markets 2008
http://globaledge.msu.edu/resourceDesk/mpi/

Global marketing is becoming more and more important along the years with the increasing trend in internationalization. Having too many choices, marketers face the challenge of determining which international markets to enter and the appropriate marketing strategies for those countries. The focus of this study is ranking the market potential of countries identified as “Emerging Markets” by The Economist magazine. These emerging economies comprise more than half of the world’s population, account for a large share of world output, and have very high growth rates; all indicators of enormous market potential. This indexing study is conducted by MSU-CIBER to help companies compare the Emerging Markets with each other on several dimensions. Eight dimensions are chosen to represent the market potential of a country over a scale of 1 to 100. Each dimension is measured using various indicators, and are weighted in determining their contribution to the Overall Market Potential Index.
