“Jumpin’ the shark,” like Web 2.0, has jumped the shark

December 19, 2005 | By | No Comments

Richard McManus, who has written extensively about Web 2.0, now is talking about how it’s dead. Kind of. OK, really, it’s the term “Web 2.0” that’s dead. We’re getting all hung up on the semantics, McManus says, getting himself all hung up on the semantics.

The most interesting part of McManus’ post, though, gets lost in all this discussion about what Web 2.0 is, isn’t, or otherwise. He mentions that he plans to discuss “…more media-related Web technologies.” He continues, “many of the things I’m interested in are being done by Yahoo!, which by now is generally recognized as a media company.” Interesting concept, this emergence of the web-as-media, and I think he’s onto something so much that I’ve been working on a piece for the better part of a week about the very thing. The funny thing is, while no one’s willing to admit it yet, we’ve been down this route before. It, too, had a name that many bandied about back in the day that fell out of favor. They called it… convergence. Should we start calling this “Convergence 2.0”?

Where to find me for now…

OK, so until we get things worked out here, you can check out my thoughts and ramblings at Blogspot. Figure I’ll have all this other stuff worked out by Christmas and be back here full time by just after the first of the year. I’ll probably keep the Blogspot space as well for a while, anyway.

By the way, the current design of the site is going away real soon now. So, if you hate this look, hang with me for a bit. It’ll all work out in the end. ‘K?

OK, so Blogger went ahead and blew up my blog. I haven’t been able to post anything for the last couple of weeks, but, rest assured, I’m back. This is the first post of ‘thinks,’ now hosted locally by yours truly. I’ll work to get the template I want and the archived content up within a few weeks. More to follow soon.
