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!.
An interesting conversation, particularly #9:
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.
