Buzzwords “R” Us

Those of you who know me will know that I abhor the use of the term Web 2.0. It’s meaningless! Well it seems I’m not the only one. Mike Moritz, a venture capitalist whose successes include Google and Yahoo to name but a few, was recently asked what Web 2.0 means to him. He replied, ” Nothing – less than zero. Falling romantically in love with buzz phrases tends to be a fairly painful experience in our business.” If one of Silicon Valley’s pre-eminent VCs doesn’t give any credence to the term then neither should you! Enough already.
