so true. times are changing, like how 7 year olds used to want toys for xmas and now they want ipod’s and cell phones :)

Comment by Steve N — December 30, 2005

And grown ups don’t want ipods and cell phones anymore, instead they want geeky t-shirts…?

The graphic by the way is great. So true, so true.

Comment by Julian — December 30, 2005

But Steve, for 7 year olds today, those are toys. just very expensive ones.

Like the antialiasing on the Web 2.0 version :-)

Comment by Jonathan Aquino — December 30, 2005

That’s because it’s one version better…

I’d like to add that to be truly “2.0”, the “beta” text should be of a pastel colour of some sort. ;)

Comment by Scott Schiller — December 31, 2005

Dion, you win.

Comment by Ralesk — January 1, 2006

BETA should be version 0.932 instead :)

Comment by Frederik Grue — January 2, 2006

So true. What will Web 3.0 bring?

Why the hell is everyone going in for BETA all the time. Think about customers, think business (WEB 2.0 is about business, pleasing customers , helping them to have a good web experience and from that making money). WTF do customers think when they see BETA?. Does this mean ‘something may go wrong’, please bear with us because we cannot be so sure that this is going to work’. ‘Dear guinea pig/customer help me sort this out and then I will sell you my products. I appreciate the growth element and involving customers to create the best web environment for your business, I further appreciate the fantastic opportunites and ability to interact with the customer with AJAX and RUBY on RAILS, but…….. At the end of the day, its about getting customers, pleasing them, making them happy, make them return and worshipping the ground they walk on – not using them as (ill qualified) testers. Can somebody please explain or debate this point. Thanks

The answer is really quite simple: “No battle plan ever survived contact eith the enemy”


No matter how much in-house testing you do, there will be things that get past your internal QA. It is simply not possible to anticipate everything a user might do on an appliction. When you release a Beta, you should have a reasonably stable and well-tested application that is ready for use in the real world, by real users. Inevitably, in this first release, there will be bugs that are found by the users that you never would have thought to look for, and there will be suggestions from the users that you missed in the development, for whatever reason.

By dubbing this a “Beta”, you alert the user that the application is NOT fully user-tested, and that you are actively seeking feedback. Some users are OK with this, others aren’t. Those who aren’t will probably stay away from the application until it’s “real” release.

This is done, BTW, to ultimately better “get customers, please them, make them happy and make them return”

As far as users being “ill qualified” – who better to judge how well your application suits their needs than the very people who will be using the application?

[…] La semana pasada me proponía aprender un poco más sobre la wikipedia y editar algun articulo, finalmente lo hice, y edité una entrada sobre una de las tecnologías que más me gustan de mi nuevo y flamante imac, bonjour un acercamiento al Zeroconf de Apple. Se ha tratado solo de una traducción del inglés, y muchas de las referencias que hace el artículo siguen estando solo en inglés, así que iré intentando traducirlas poco a poco. Esto podría llegar a convertirse en un vicio. Por otro lado también dije en la lista de correo de Linux-Málaga que crearía un planeta (que es la unión en una sola pagina de varios blogs) para blogs los socios.Pues bien, esta creado el planeta, no toda la autoría, dexae ha aportado mucho. No se puede decir que este terminado, esta en beta, como esta ahora tan de moda decir. Pero esta razonablemente funcional, y así va a seguir unos días y dependiendo de como responda, lo publicaremos en la página de linux-malaga y en la lista de correo. […]

With beta logo it seems that developers feels how they are authorized to make some mistakes in their web apps!

Comment by Matteo — January 23, 2007

The answer is easy:

WEB 1.0 requires a computer to run, WEB2.0 does not requires a computer to run!. In 1.0 the information was disperse, in 2.0 there is a more efficient way of share and share information like: digg, stumble upon, etc. Web 2.0 support Asynchronous javascript wich allows users to have a better navigational experience with the use of lightboxes, popup mini windows, etc.
