The approach to the Web commonly referred to as Web 2.0 is pretty interesting and has practical benefits, as we see through blogs and services like Google Maps and Technorati. But the phenomenon is almost not worth fooling with because of the silly, buzzword-laden hype surrounding it all. The edublogosphere is particularly bad about this; go to any Web 2.0-friendly education blog and the signal-to-noise ratio — replete with multiple references to "conversations" and "digital natives" ad infinitum — is almost unbearable.
That’s why I’m glad to have stumbled on this site. Just go look. The name says it perfectly. Some sample products:
- Good BS Web 2.0 phrases. How about this: Casting Out Nines is all about sharing rich-client tagclouds.
- My own Web 2.0 company name and product description. My company name was Ritibo, whose product is ad-supported maps via ajax.
- A whole page full of randomly-generated Web 2.0 buzzphrases.
Nice! I have a conference coming up in October; I should use some of this stuff.
