The end of the walled garden

A number of speakers at the Web2.0 expressed a very meaninful idea in my opinion: that lock-in data and the walled-garden approach to community information is a dead-end, and that the communities that open up their content to be shared with other communities will win in the end. It's not the content that makes the site valuable, but the way the site displays and shares the content that makes it preferrable in an open web (much as Google won out because it had a better way of sorting results, rather than having better content per say.)
