Now I suppose you want to say Wikipedia is just an over glamourized Lotus
Notes and a blog is just a simple CMS, thus ignoring the truly Revolutionary
aspects of how the new Web 2.0 technology is making a radically different
and more user participatory web.

It's not that the technology floated down from a UFO bringing unprecedented
functionalities, it's that the best of it (YouTube, Digg, Swicki, Flickr,
Blogger, RSS, Google mashups, etc.) are empowering the average person to
communicate on a more level playing field with corporations and big media,
often surpassing them with "viral" luckiness or genius, as the case may be.

To say it's same-o same-o is to drastically misinterpret the user impact and
the new community of co-creators enabled by RIA.
