What is he complaining about? The fact that businesses are tagging applications as "Web 2.0" applications? The fact that people are making money off of the web by selling ideas again? Long live the web for sure, but there is no reason to put out a statement that what is going on the web today is not something new. Even if it is a resurgence from the old days and not much in technology has changed, at least people are actually doing something with the Web now.


He's not complaining, he's just tempering the web 2.0 hype as simply the web coming into its own.

I see his point, but at least web 2.0 serves to tell us which companies are part of the new paradigm, and which are simply 'webbed' versions of the old paradigm.

Mmh... What i have to write it down? I just simply remember that journalists are keeping in their minds "Who? What? Where? When? Why?" but now both with billions people and entrepreneurs and many others biz firms arount the planet they will never forget "Web!". W2.0 dead or alive? Well the focus is now on mo-blog and mo-social networking just forgeting PC and thinking everything but wireless. How we have to consider the istant messaging on mobile? Web or WX.0? Waiting your comments on that. Bye

What Marc Andreessen fails to understand is that Web 2.0 is about a new, different level of social interaction. This is very different than what we had in Web 1.0. And for those touting AI or the Semantic Web as Web 3.0, they're also missing the point: Web 3.0 will be about another level of social interaction, perhaps commonplace telepresence/augmented realities, distributed virtual product development teams -- with real tools they can use to facilitate collaboration, things like this.
