Media2.egO *

Did this basic presentation at the “Advancing Web 2.0 for traditional media” conference at the Wanderers in Johannesburg (Seff Efrika), organised by Classic Events. They pulled in quite a crowd — in fact by far one of the largest I’ve been to on this subject matter in this country. That’s pretty good news for the industry.

My presentation was on how Web 2.0 can be integrated into online media models. My design for this presentation reminds me of a sushi bar for some reason. Have to be honest, getting really bored of the word “Web 2.0” (Spitooey). Can’t someone invent a new one? Then we can all sound really clever all over again.

    a new word for web 2.0? i think we’re pretty much ready to call it “the web”. this whole versioning of the web is a little ridiculous.

    it’s a natural evolution of how the web functions as a platform, and judging by the number of people that have embraced things like facebook, youtube, flickr etc (most of them not knowing that they’re interacting in a “web 2.0 way”) we’re already at web 2.0.

    or, if we’re going to insist on versioning, i think we should be talking about “web 2.1” or “web 2.2 beta” 😉

    For someone who’s on sabbatical, you’re pretty prolific! Fab presentation, maybe it’s the slick and uncluttered part that’s the sushi bar…
