Does web 2.0 suck?

Posted By on Fri, Apr 27, 2007 at 1:21 PM

A top 10 list of why web 2.0 isn't all it's cracked up to be, from Charlie, a non-Vermonter, at a blog called, This is going to be BIG!

A lot of powerful people don't participate.  Howmany VC's out there fund widget companies without having a blog or aMySpace profile?  Any Sony bloggers out there?  What about brandmanagers that want to do Second Life campaigns without ever having beeninside.  How about my elected representatives?  They get out there andkiss babies during election time, but how many blogging electedofficials are there?  (And not watered down campaign blogs... actualblogs written by the actual people.)  We could do great things if weweren't so segregated into a small group of people punch drunk on KoolAid and a great deal of people who've never even heard of Kool Aid. 

Just wanted to put this idea out there to encourage discussion.

    Social Sentinel, a Burlington-based company that identifies threatening content on social media, was among the winners of the 2018 Tech Jam awards, presented last Friday at the 12th Vermont Tech Jam. The prizes, given annually by the Vermont Technology Alliance, BTV Ignite and Seven Days, recognize leaders in the state's tech ecosystem. The awards ceremony was the culmination of a busy day at the free career and tech expo organized by Seven Days and presented by Vermont Works. Representatives from more than 50 companies and colleges talked with hundreds of attendees who walked the expo floor. Jeff Couture, executive director of the Vermont Technology Alliance, said he talked with job seekers from across Vermont and outside the state at the event, "including someone, suitcase in hand, who visited from North Carolina."
