Web 2.0: A chance for Tech Show presenters to bombard us with buzzwords

Just watching "CNN Connects: Our Networked World". It's basically a round table discussion on the "new" explosion of internet usage in the form of Youtube and the like. 

It's a relatively interesting discussion. There's a co-founder of Flickr, the founder of Facebook, the CEO of Orange etc. Clueless CNN Presenter

But, as usual, the presenter is absolutely clueless concerning the current world of the internet and just reeks of condescension and stupidity. In between lame jokes about Second Life and The Matrix and rampant hand-waving, she comes up with gems like this: 

"If Web 2.0 is more than just a marketing gimmick, then there will be a Web 3.0, won't there?"

Yuck.

HamidohI don't understand why the big broadcasting networks don't hire people who are genuinely into the field. It's like they called up the weather team and asked them to pick a weather girl at random to present a tech show. Makes me want to throw the TV out of the window.

  1. Web 2.0 is just a gimmick, like most Web 2.0 “technologies”. The people who actually know what they’re talking about when it comes to web development have really started to hate the term as it creates a set of bad expectations of what a project will look like at the end.

    It’s going to be “Web Trois” actually.

  3. Andy I agree entirely. The web’s just following its natural progression and I hate the usage of “Web 2.0” – hence the buzzword comment. It drives me absolutely nuts.
