Where convergence is seen as a good thing
Something to watch for (?)
The press release says :
The next step in social media has finally arrived, and it is YouGetIt.com.
« Websites like flickr.com, YouTube.com, Craigslist.com, Joost.com, and any other hot Web 2.0 property are all very limited, » says William Mobley, CEO of Web2Corp. « They’re social media, yes, but they only deal with one aspect of media. flickr.com is a photo site, YouTube does video, and eBay is auctions and sales. You don’t have convergence, you don’t have synergy of content. (…) »
We’ve moved beyond Web 2.0 and are launching Web 2.1. We’re finally beginning to approach what Tim O’Reilly calls the « Semantic Web ». The Internet’s about to be revolutionized, and we’re starting by inviting media, major tech writers, and bloggers to come see what the next big thing is. »
Yawn. I swear, everything is _the next best thing_
Methinks I’m getting cynical in my old age.
