Ok, I have to get this off my chest. What is it with the 2.0s? People are just finding random web words, putting 2.0s in them, and either:
- Making a blog on it.
- Writing an essay on it and getting bloggers to notice it. And when bloggers do read it, they will link to it. Guaranteed.
- Starting a company and pitching the buzzword to investors OR
- Doing all of the above.
So far, I’ve found so many words that I might as well make a list, and for evidence, link it to Google.
- Web 2.0 (I’m a bit guilty of this myself, but this is real, this is the word that started it all, and is the only one in the list that questionably actually exists.)
- Publishing 2.0
- News 2.0
- Design 2.0
- Blogging 2.0
- Where 2.0
- Marketing 2.0
- Podcasting 2.0
See what I mean? It’s just getting ridiculous. People, please, by all means, do stop. It’s not something to be proud of.
