Web 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, etc....
Okay, I got suckered into the hype of Web 2.0. I just read an article that pretty much exposes 2.0 for what it is: hype. (Had I been thinking, I would have provided a link to the article. But at 1:45 am, I don't think too clearly.)
Anyway, that person is pretty much expecting the current bubble to pop. Which is plausable. I keep seeing little fish getting gobbled by bigger fish. Sooner or later the pond is gonna run outta food. And we're not really any closer to the concept of the Semantic Web, which is when I know the internet will have come of age.
Right now we have lots of pretty apps that work on the web. But most of them are still platform specific. Or written with cell phones in mind. I use a cell phone for one reason: "Help, my car broke down on the highway. Come get me." Geez, I still have a land line. Call me old fashioned.
I have my website set up for any number of web "upgrades". I never worried about the hype. How did I get sucked into it so easily? Better salesmanship, I guess.
