I have been reading about how several successful startups -- Facebook, MySpace, BitTorrent, YouTube, Skype, and HotOrNot -- fueled their early growth that lead to their success.
Trebor Scholz, who maintains and moderates one of the most consistently qualitive mailing lists for the Institute for Distributed Creativity , has recently started an on-going debate on the ethics of participatory culture. Web 2.0. is three things.
Matthew Miller has written in to express his concerns over GnuHoo- the web link tracking project that we posted last week. The issue is use of the term 'GNU' in their name- when in fact their project is all proprietary software. Hit the link below to read what Matthew has to say about it.
The real story of Web 2.0 has little to do with the bells and whistles and everything to do with the stunning growth of online advertising. If you look there is a valley between the dotcom spending days (99/2000) and today, but the trend line would be fairly straight if you held a ruler over the 97 to 2006 points–which I do here with the black line. That dotcom overspend, and the dip after it, shouldn’t have happened.

Jaron Lanier recently called the Web 2.0 movement “ digital maoism .” Now, as if on cue, the Cultural Revolution has begun. Lawrence Lessig, in a post titled “The Ethics of Web 2.0,” suggests that some Web 2.0 companies are not fit to wear the Web 2.0 label.
Lawrence Lessig has a thoughtful post about something that I've been mentioning in recent talks I've given, but haven't blogged much about.
January 18, 2013 · Lessig · Reblogged from A week ago today, Aaron gave up. And since I received the call late Friday night telling me that, like so many others who were close to him, I have not rested. Not slept, really. Not connected with my kids, at all. Not held my wife except to comfort her tears, or for her to comfort mine.
"Perpetual beta" means never having to say you're sorry. Most of what I read under the "Web2.0" moniker just goes over (or is it under?) my head.
Comment As the Web 2.0 bandwagon continues its rapidly accelerating path downhill towards the inevitable crash we find ourselves at another turning point in the development of the networked world.
Flickr founders Stewart Butterfield and Caterina Fake made the cover of Newsweek for their popular photo-sharing site. Digg founder Kevin Rose made the cover of BusinessWeek after his news-ranking site took off. Online video hub YouTube is ubiquitous, while social networking giants MySpace and Facebook are in everyone's faces. OK, we get it.
