    Web 2.0 has electrolytes. It's what websites crave.

    Apparently Web 2.0 has been fake thus far. The real Web 2.0 is coming!

    However, they are mistaken about Web 2.0. The wiki for Web 3.0 clearly stated that the proliferation of online client applications is an attribute of Web 3.0, not Web 2.0. Unfortunately the Web 3.0 wiki was deleted for being a neologism. Fortunately the Web 3.0 concepts have found refuge in the larger Web 2.0 tent.

    Interpretive joke:

    If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, and you don't like ducks, then it's a chicken.

    :heh:

    Posts split from the hilarity thread.

    Sometimes I get people who are so bent on the Web 2.0 label that they can't see anything else. For example, I had a guy once who wanted a blog that functions like a forum. I told him he should get a forum then. He said he didn't want a forum because forums are Web 1.0 and blogs are Web 2.0. The label was more important to him than the functionality.

    This kind of thinking isn't exclusive to Web 2.0 either. I had another guy who wanted a CMS that functions like a forum, but he didn't want a forum. He seemed to be sold on CMS as some sort of desirable program. Then he defined the CMS to be what he actually wanted.

    Webmasters and, I would argue, people in general are increasingly thinking in very vague terms using meaningless and nonfunctional abstractions to fill gaps in their knowledge.

    Insightful take on one definition of web 2.0, where web 2.0 represents the rise of user-generated content:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_2.0#Criticism

    I never thought of it that way. It's true that more and more online content is now contributed by "visitors," many of whom are inept. This corollary to mediocrity would seem to be most represented by large all-inclusive services like facebook, youtube, etc.

    The "professionals" of comedy are not always as funny as the "laymen" on youtube. But I think the "pros" weed out a lot of the crap; with youtube, there is no filter.
