Labels That Mean Nothing
Iíve never liked the Web 2.0 label. I donít like the Enterprise 2.0 label. I donít like anything about the 2.0 label. I canít even begin to think about wrapping my mind around the 3.0 label.
I was in a meeting with an entrepreneur the other who I like a lot. Heís got a neat company, is making great progress, has a good understanding of what he is trying to do, and is now out in front of customers with his product. However, his investor presentation had ď2.0Ē littered through it. Web 2.0. Enterprise 2.0. Community 2.0. Marketing 2.0. After the meeting, I gave him a lot of feedback, including my allergic reaction to all things labeled 2.0.
Labels should be evocative. 2.0 might have meant something once Ė when the energy around the Web began emerging again out of the rubble of the Internet crash of 2001. But it doesnít mean anything to me any more. Be wary of labels that mean nothing.
