Xeni Jardin’s Wired article Web 2.0 Cracks Start to Show is a good read. I read it yesterday, and found it to be a fair apprisal of the Web 2.0 situation, except for one line by Nick Carr, whose recent The Amorality of Web 2.0 has been kicking up some serious dust.
Carr’s line, which Xeni quoted, was “A lot of participatory media is mediocre”.
I’m not going to write more about it here, other than to say that I’ve heard Nick Carr speak, and he’s obviously a swell, even-tempered person.
But if you want to know my opinion of that quote go check out Boing Boing.
