The state of mind OR rather Web 2.0
There has been lately alot of talk about what some industry leaders think is/isn't Web 2.0 After reading several interesting articles, I have found myself agreeing on times and laughing my ass off aswell. So what causes hilarity? I don't actually know, smart things have been said and done, but is the Web 2.0 just a state of mind like nirvana and not actually a place (or a band for that matter)? So, what eggheads HAVE been whispering to my ear? Well, for first, our smooth and slick comrades at 37 Signals think that their mothership to Web 2.0 is Ruby on Rails, while they are clearly stating that Ajax, RSS etc. are history and so are companies like Yahoo! Microsoft and the industry superpower Google. Why do they think this? Well, the explanation Bitey style is easy, back when Web 1.0 toddlerstate began, we were all wild west and bar brawls, but WE have been comitted to community service, regular people who work behind the curtain and innovate things. Yes, we say it's OUR but it's not ours, and it has not been that for a fair decade anymore, Yahoo! Ebay, Amazon, Google and such took it from us and pocketed everything we helped and to some degree BUILT, like the settlers who built america, we were the brits who were pushed back by the cool kids with their markettin millions and TV ads. Web 2.0 will not be those cool kids, it will be the regular joes, the tech savy people who take the web by the throat and make it work for them and not the otherway around like it has been till now. There has been clear signs for good few years now, Blogs from every nook and granny, Wikipedia, Archive.org, and things like that. Technologies built by people and not companies, strive and gather people together to celebrate the new coming of the age of man, MAN WHO TOOK BACK THE CONTROL OF THE WILDERNESS FROM THE SAVAGE ANIMALS THAT HABITED IT THUSFAR! I could go on and on, but what I wanted to say, I have said. Discussion ensues!
