Now the blog is sometimes overdone, does not have a professional tone and even gets personal. Still, if as a third person you can read the blog along with all those things that are holding web 2.0 so high, you can expect to remain balanced.
Overall – yeah, I also think this Web 2.0 thing is being overdone. For all the success stories that are being boasted about, the “success” is being defined in terms of securing VC funding… Don’t you think it would be a good idea to talk about revenue model? What other than advertising? And if it’s just advertising, how different it would be from the earlier Internet Bubble really? Okay – the advertising had changed its face from the falshing, out-of-context, onstrusive banners and pop-ups to quite, nice and context dependent Google Ads. But hey, come on. That’s an improvement, but how many businesses do you expect to run on that!! If everybody earn from advertising who will pay for them? 🙂
So, my questions about Web 2.0 is –
- What is it really (yes! 😦 )?
- What’s the revenue model (Not Google Adsense please!)?
