I wonder why.
1. The internet is dead.
2. STOP WEB 2.0
3. Technology is the enabler of business not its purpose.
“Stop it. We already have an internet… Web 2.0 started as a good idea. That idea has had its day. Good little dog. Now go away.”
I’m not about to take the website that seriously, because there is something somewhat flawed in their “manifesto” a.k.a. The Leviticus Project. So I scratched my head and headed over here to write this post.
Yes, “we already have the Internet.” So, uh, why is it dead?. Yes, cyberspace is an ancient term for what we have today. But since when has Web 2.0 come to contradict it, or even take the place of the internet it was built on?
Yes, it’s been hyped too much. (Uh, don’t get me started on the names.) Is the added convenience and knowledge that has come of it, despite that hype, deemed unnecessary as well?
Is this what you what you get when you try to (a) redefine an undefinable phenomenon that started out to be something cooler and more wonderful than the usual way of using the web; (b) throw that coined term around with or without full understanding of it; (c) patent it and try make money from it?
Yes, all of the above.
I’m no expert about Web 2.0 but this has gotten out of hand.
Update: “Always forward ladies and gentlemen- INSTEAD of whining- we work and go forward” says he. So why’d he break his own rule? (You’ll find the answer in the comment section of this post.) His colleague puts it much more nicely: “why sit around and talk when you can do!”
