New Name and Symbol Signals Web2's Mission to Be a Leader Among the Next Generation Web 2.0 Companies

ORLANDO, Fla., July 31 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- 110 Media Group, Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: ONTN) announced today that it has completed its name change to Web2 Corp. and now trades on the Nasdaq OTC:BB Electronic Quotation Service under the stock symbol "WBTO."

Under the new identity, Web2 has re-oriented its mission and plans to begin release of an array of new Internet products, beginning with the launch of the Chamber of E-Commerce for the business community. The Chamber of E-Commerce provides a resource center for small businesses that has not previously existed. It offers a variety of reference materials, promotional directories, a community place for virtual business owners to gather, and a selection of services and products to encourage and simplify e-business. "Our goal is to arm the vast numbers of non-technical business owners with e-commerce products that let them stay focused on their business, not on learning arcane details of the Web," says William Mobley, Chairman of Web2 Corp. "We are the non-techie do-it-yourself solution that is perfect for eBay sellers who want their own website, or small business operators who have avoided the Internet. We target non-consumers by making the process easy, fun, fast and very affordable."

Aiming to harness the power of new technologies to simplify productive use of the Internet, Web2 has numerous products in the queue for launch, including a new form of search engine, an adaptation of social network technologies for business use, and an array of e-commerce solutions that integrate the most- used features of established competitive products into one easy-to-use suite under the Chamber of E-Commerce. Web2 thrives on identifying areas of user frustration. It then sets about creating products that simplify the process and eliminate the sources of friction. In doing so, the company levers the latest technology and combines it with a dose of common sense in designing an intuitive product that integrates the 20% of features that 80% of users desire. The goal is to leapfrog incumbent competitors and profit through the sale of products that people want and will use daily.

Product rollout is expected to begin on August 1st with the release of the company's e-commerce offers. Additional rollouts are expected in August and September in time for small businesses to utilize them in the fourth quarter.

Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Lo...
