Time Runs Obituary for Web 2.0
Ok, so my headline doesn’t really convey the storyline behind Time’s Person of the Year, but it does convey my sentiment. Naming Web 2.0, and all of “us” who’ve contributed content, Person of the Year is a little cheesy.
Still, Time will enjoy a lot of buzz from the web community and we should all be grateful they at least acknowledge the clout we wield in the world of media.
Hopefully, with “Web 2.0” becoming part of the lexicon of mainstream media, the cool kids will drop the phrase, and we can all move on to the task of just making the web a valuable resource and handing over more power to the masses.
