I hear the phrase "web 2.0" everywhere these days. Web 2.0 sites are the darlings of the media and web 2.0 technologies are being incorporated into user experiences left and right. How do we know when the craze is over and the popular culture is more than ready to move on?
Based on the crazy dream I had last night I'm going to go out on a limb and say that web 2.0 has jumped the shark - at least in my own mind. In this dream I was an architect of some sort planning a new project. I was given the task of design a Barn, Barn 2.0 to be exact. Then I was handed some tools - a pad of paper and a pen. I was told that they were new. They were Paper 2.0 and Pen 2.0.
