the user experience agency, has always been in the “Web 2.0” mix, and last week Brandon Schauer published an interesting article, “experience attributes: crucial dna of web 2.0“. It’s a pretty good piece, but I always wonder – what about the fact that there was a TON of very “Web 2.0” stuff going on well before anyone actually wanted to live South of Market St.? The WELL? Very Web 2.0. The original HotWired? Very 2.0. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that Steadman owns Plastic, which is clearly a proto-2.0 space. For almost everyone who was involved – professionally or not – in the WWW back then knows that Web 2.0 is really simply things getting back on the course we set 12-15 years ago.
I wonder why everyone seems to ignore this?
