Am i wasting time..

Posted by Girish Krishnan on August 31, 2006

by analyzing Web 2.0? Is it a trend worthy of analyzing?

Many a time, fundamental questions rock the boat when you think you are halfway ur journey..Let me pose some thought provoking q’s to myself and see if i get confused 🙂

~Web 2.0 is made of … 600 million unwanted opinions in realtime

~Web 2.0 is the air for the next bubble

~Web 2.0 is made of … marketing and collaborative self-deception

~Web 2.0 is made of …an infinite number of bloggers randomly generating Shakespeare. Professionals have no hope against infinity.

~Web 2.0 is made of…ground up marketing demons repackaged and rebranded to sell something that has existed on the internet since it begun. It’s just a buzz word to get management interested in spending money

My alter ego wants to have a go at it too..see below..

~ Web 2.0 enables democratic realization of self (keeps learning/changing) Gratification in a collectivistic society (netizens) but with fear of babudom (google anyone?)

The moral of the story is simple – though there are contrarian views on Web 2.0,  it provides a platform to think about the whats/whys of the increased internet activity of our times…and i believe that should be the bottom line!!

  1. Coming from the Bschool, you should take Web 2.0 as another buzz word around which thousands of webpages, PPTs and docs are made.

  2. I like that! – Even this blog stands testimony to ur statement 🙂
