There Is NO Such Thing as Web 2.0
I’ll say it again — there is NO such thing as Web 2.0.
For anybody who might disagree then please tell me this — where or when exactly did Web 1.0 end, and Web 2.0 began?
There is no answer because the web is the result of a gradual evolution of technological development. The meme web 2.0 makes great copy for the computer czars to slog, and an excuse for Tim O’Reilly and his partners to sell more seminars and books.
It’s marketing mumbo-jumbo, and that (as they say folks) is the end of the story. So don’t buy into it (pun intended).
Update $$$: I’ve reconsidered and as I speak I’m working on Web 4.0. The book should be out in about a month and a speaking tour with Guy Kawasaki is in the works this summer. So stay tuned for further details.
P.s.: Tim, you can forget about trying to steal it because it’s already trademarked. Ha!
