A lot of these Technologies listed above (CF/PHP/MySQL/Java) are finally maturing and an amazing breadth of products are being developed on all the above platforms.

Between those applications and then amazon, yahoo and ebay, literally the whole world is at your fingertips. Now, its really a question of coming up with new ways to apply these technologies and thats whats really exciting.
