Fost’s “Top 10 Lies About Web 2.0”

The Chronicle gave a warm reception to the Web 2.0 conference this week in San Francisco. The list, which I learned about at Scripting News, begins like this:

1. We learned our lesson last time. And we’re going to cash out before this bubble pops.

2. This is not a bubble. Hot parties, overheated PR pitches, and five or six dozen social networking sites are just healthy indicators of a new boom.

3. It’s all about community and sharing. But we told our venture capitalists that our exit strategy will make them rich. (Corollary: But you have to know someone to get into our conference/party.)
