Web 2.0

Well, when even the BBC gets round to ridiculing "Web 2.0" it's time to make a comment...

Yes, maybe it did achieve what Tim O'Reilly wanted but... ugh... and everybody wants to now what's next because, y'know, "Web 2.0" is like, so, legacy.

Unfortunately the answer is that you are already using Web 2.700.1.237 (alpha) Build 591 LITE.

Please try to keep up.

Personally I think the way forward is to prefix Web - as in flatWeb, actiWeb, dynaWeb, ubiWeb, uberWeb, and when we run out of intensifiers just at more b's at the end...

Actually, maybe we had The Web... then the Webb, and soon (?) theWebbb.

but I'm hanging out ffor the stuffffWebbbb.

Thanks for the fish?

Exciting news - a large population (6000+) of Irrawadday dolphins has just been discovered.

This is particularly noteworthy because:
"Each discovery of Irrawaddy dolphins is important because scientists do not know how many remain on the planet"
Eeek! When, where, and how did they leave? Maybe Douglas Adams was right.

Squeaky Stuff.
