Ask “is Xbox 360 a Web 2.0 product?”
Seriously. And there are some good points both pro and con. Think about it. It uses the Internet. It has a new microtransactional based business model. Has a social model where large numbers of people interact with the Web. Has a new architectural model based around rich content types, content discovery, and personalization, and has a new technical model using low/no cost maintenance, simple programming languages, and new delivery mechanisms, particularly around RSS.
Seriously, what do we call the “post dotbomb” Web? Basically that’s what we’re talking about here.
I don’t really care what it’s called, but Web 2.0 is starting to grow on me cause it only takes seven characters to type.
Anyway, looks like Web 2.0 is the argument of the day on memeorandum. Yes, we are a bunch of geeks who don’t have much new to talk about because all the PR folks in the industry are on vacation. Or so it seems.
