[thelist] "Web 2.0 sites with the big friendly fonts"

There is no Web 1.0; Web 2.0 is not a new version of the internet; It is 
not a new technology; It is not a skillset or craft.

At a stretch you could call it a philosophy, but that philosophy has all 
the same precepts as what the web was going do for us in the first 
place, it is just fresher.

If a client (even a very rich one) asked me if I could develop a Web 2.0 
site, I wouldn't give them a yes/no answer. It sounds like shooting 
myself in the foot, but I couldn't take myself seriously if I said yes, 
and likely I couldn't develop the nuclear fission reactor contained 
entirely in their employee's browser viewports that they might 
understand by that.

You guys can go off into the warp gate without me, and I'll stick here 
on this cold, boring first edition of the cybernet, but I'm sure we'll 
still bump into each-other from time to time. Hehehe.
