I keep on reading about new web sites and companies that are using something called Web 2.0? What is Web 2.0 and where can I get a copy?
Sincerely, Nate Dayton OH
Mr. OH! Where did you ever get such a cool middle name like Dayton? Anyway, I’m so glad you asked about Web 2.0 or as I like to call it WEB…TWO…OH!
I’m so, soooo, sorry that you are apparently still using Web 1.0 or as we Web 2.0 Gurus like to call it…antiquated puny web. It is about time you enter the new millennium and start learning about the next generation of webness.
Here is my short list of things that put the OH! in Web 2.0…
- You need a cool Web 2.0 name with lots of x’s and o’s or missing vowels or if you want to really be cutting edge get one of those names that have lots of dots in them like u.rsopu.nyw.eb (no www or .com to be the coolest). If you need some assitance in this area use this fancy Web 2.0 name generator which will generate a name and also a cool Web 2.0 business idea.
- You need to use a Really, Really, Really… BIG typeface on your Web 2.0 site. This is so obvious that it hurts to write it but get a clue…Web 2.0 is BIGGER than antiquated puny web so use a bigger font!
- To be Web 2.0 you need to use the latest cool TWO OH! technologies like AJAX, RSS, tags, mashups, social bookmarking, MySpace-ness, you know cutting edge-type stuff.
Nat, there is so much more to write but listen I’ve got to go change my domain name to p.ps.ft!
In the meantime, here are some helpful links to assist you in your Web 2.0 research:
Make sure to write me back when you get a clue.
