If I make a webpage that looks really smooth and well designed with fancy graphics and soft colors, then it seems to be web 2.0, even if I used badly coded HTML.
However, if I make a page that is chunky, looks like a hick designed it in 1996 when they first recieved an “AOL INTERNETS” cd or floppy diskette in the mail, then it is most assuredly NOT web 2.0, even if both pages have the exact same information.
My music did not become Music 2.0 when I loaded it onto my iPod, nor did my computer become PC 2.0 when I put in new hard drives.
Myspace is not web 2.0, its just a bunch of kids trying to impress each other. No different than what angelfire, geocities or theglobe or any other “social” site was 10 years ago. “But Myspace is so cool, it lets you do so much.” O Rly? The way I see it, myspace is pretty lame. I guess if you like to see fake sparkle graphics on phrases such as “PImpette” or “2 hottie 4 U.” then yes, it allows you to do so much. If you want to go to a video site and add an annoying EMO band video to your page, then yes, myspace.com is the place for you. If you want to have “friends” by the dozen, yeah, it again will work for you. But I don’t think that having a shitty myspace page will help you get a job any time soon, in fact, it might just be a hinderance. No, it will be a hinderance.
yahoo 360, flickr, flock,gmail,yadda yadda yadaa, myspace, livejournal, facebook, etc., are NOT web 2.0
Gigabit fiber in every home is web 2.0.
Everything else is just updated eye-candy content.
“But we can share our information so easy, it has to be web 2.0”
No, it is not. Try again fucker. It has just been made easier for retards like you to use it, information was easy to share before people started posting bad pictures of each other in bars trying to be cool.
I am going grocery shopping when the superbowl starts, so I can shop in peace.
