A bit of a kafuffle over blogging etiquette lately, and whether or not “rules” of behavior should be introduced – with, for example, a little logo that complying bloggers could put up to flag to the world their compliant nature.
I keep meaning to write something about all of this … I might even get around to it some day.
In the meantime, I can’t get past some guy called O’Reilly, who keeps getting quoted in pretty much every article about the mooted blogging code of behavior.
His only claim to fame, until now, seems to be – and I only know this because all of the articles keep mentioning it – that he “coined” the term “Web 2.0”.
Which, allegedly, “describes the booming world of citizen media”.
Imagine waking up one morning and putting “web” and the number “2” together.
Then announcing it to ... the neighbors cat.
I’m dazzled by his intellect.
I think I’m suffering all kinds of envy.
I think I’ve never seen or heard anyone use “Web 2.0” to describe bloody anything.
[Just in case you don't believe me it's mentioned in this article ... ]
