Web 2.0 is Dead; Long Live Web 2.0!

  1. Web 2.0 is Dead . Long Live Web 2.0! Dave McClure, Master of 500 Hats @ Univ. Edinburgh, Jan 2008 blog: http://500hats.typepad.com/ web: http://www.500hats.com/ slides: http://slideshare.net/dmc500hats/
  2. Summary: The Bad  <ul><li>Web 2.0 is *so* over . Really now, we’ve been stuck on “v2” for 4-5 years now, haven’t we? Iterate already! </li></ul><ul><li>Online Advertising will be hit hard by US recession . Expect some pullback from Google, Yahoo, MSFT and financial advertisers in particular. </li></ul><ul><li>VCs are getting nervous again ; money may dry up if Google ever has an earnings “hiccup” (watch Thursday) </li></ul><ul><li>WAY TOO MANY startups with nothing more than 1 web page for a product. Feature-itis is killing me. </li></ul>
  3. Summary: The Good  <ul><li>The fuzzily-defined movement known as Web 2.0 continues to expand . Costs are lower, features are better, more people & ideas to try out & monetize. </li></ul><ul><li>Market downturns should be softened by overall continuing growth in online advertising & e-commerce . </li></ul><ul><li>VCs will succeed & VCs will fail, but there will always be plenty of cash available if you’ve got a good idea . </li></ul><ul><li>Getting a Web 2.0 startup off the ground is easier & less costly than ever … but still thousands of ideas to try. </li></ul>
