In a weird coincidence, just this morning I was thinking about how annoying the “any frigging thing 2.0” nomenclature has become. Web 2.0, Life 2.0, My Left Butt Cheek 2.0, it has all become tiresome. Here is Tim Bray talking about the same subject. He seems to be approaching it more from the perspective of whether or not it is technically correct, whereas my problem is that it is cliched and bores me. I listened to a bunch of older IT Conversations shows last night while doing a menial repetitive task, and must have heard the term “Web 2.0” 25 times in 90 minutes. From now on, I am referring to “Web 2.6”. I snuck out a few maintenance releases while y’all weren’t looking.
