Criticism of Today’s Web
Two recent articles, which are definitely worth reading, are listed below.
Search engines extract too much of the Web’s value, leaving too little for the websites that actually create the content. Liberation from search dependency is a strategic imperative for both websites and software vendors.
- Another article I enjoyed reading is a critique of Web 2.0 hype
To you who are toiling over an AJAX- and Ruby-powered social software product, good luck, God bless, and have fun. Remember that 20 other people are working on the same idea. So keep it simple, and ship it before they do, and maintain your sense of humor whether you get rich or go broke. Especially if you get rich. Nothing is more unsightly than a solemn multi-millionaire.
This reminded me of a fun blog which is purely dedicated to Web 2.0 bashing.
