Web 2.0 Is Dead And It's Time To Get Out Of This Mess!

It is more than obvious that Web 2.0 is dead as a doornail

Industry blogger Alex Bunardzic writes in his "Ethical Software by Alex Bunardzic" blog: "Now that Microsoft has jumped onto the web 2.0 bandwagon, it is more than obvious that web 2.0 is dead as a doornail. Everyone knows by now that anything Microsoft touches turns into this big slimy brown mush, so now’s definitely the time to get out of that mess."

Bunardzic analyzes and explains the Web 2.0 movement's fast rise and quick demise in his blog entry. He ends his blog with the following words:

"So while wikis have been the first harbingers of the web 2.0 revolution, they continue to be the next wave, bravely pointing the way even as the web 2.0 is right now dying a horrible death of socio-pathological abusiveness.

Let us therefore leave the frothy and frivolous world of web 2.0 popularity contest ridden sites, and march forward to the new web that will be less about self-aggrandizing, and more about the communities.

Web 2.0 is dead — long live the web!"
