Newsweek has an interesting article on the new wisdom of the web where they showcase the Web 2.0 darlings and what makes them successful. Obviously it centers around community and that seems to be the only way to make something when you are going for the general consumer facing website.
The alternative of course is the 37signals old school methodology of creating a product that people are willing to pay for.
Make sure to read the article if you are at least interested in seeing how the mainstream media views the web that we have been entrenched in from the beginning.
