    Web 2.0 ... The Machine is Us/ing Us

    As much as I hate the buzzword "web 2.0" (almost as much as I hate the buzzword "AJAX"), I found this video very interesting.

    Looks like a pretentious MCM (modern culture and media) project, though it was well-done.

    At this so called "2.0" we get to what the creator of the web has intended. No, "web 2.0" will, for me, remain the synonym of doing it wrong.
    I'm not sure if this was any help, but I hope it didn't make you stupider.

    Experience is something you get just after you really need it.

    That was pretty creative. I honestly can't be bothered debating so I'll refrain from any particular opinion on web 2.0, save for the fact that like it or not it refers to another bubble and it will burst.

    I just wish I was creative enough to make a decent amount of money from this *buzzword*.

    Why don't you guys just see the term "Web 2.0" as a positive thing: a changing conciousness in web development away from browser proprietary code to something that benefits the entire community (including sharing the new inventions/discoveries - keyword: "open source")? That's Web 2.0 for me.

    Well that's how I do see it. A lot of people don't, a lot of people are afraid of it. Hence my trying to stay away from any direct comments because I don't have the time to argue my point of view.

    When I look at the web, I see its progression as a line with positive slope. I believe the web to be a developmentally continuous process, and calling some arbitrary point "2.0" implies a discrete nature and divides into black and white spheres then and now, which simply isn't accurate. This leaves me to believe the "2.0" moniker is a market-driven attempt to recreate the dot-com bubble, and not some particularly useful description.

    Not that I'm necessarily upset -- it's wonderful when I can go to any web firm and say I'll write you AJAX 2.0 apps part-time for $40/hour and they say "Yes, please do!". My booze and pizza fund would be nowhere without 2.0.
