Is Web 2.0 revolutionising our lives?

In my opinion I think it's a bit too soon to say.

However, an article in The Sunday Times the other days suggests Web 2.0 is not.

According to Bryan Appleyard, Web 2.0 is somewhere between sinister and dangerous.

Here's an extract that sums up this view:

The first objection to this is that it destroys institutions and structures that can do so much more than the individual.

A further objection to the cult’s radical individualism is that it doesn’t have the intended hyper-democratic consequences.

And, finally, the everything-free, massively deflationary effects of the web may be over.

I'm still not convinced, mainly because Appleyard assumes that people are looking to destroy existing institutions, change democratic structures, and, get it all for free, when using Web 2.0.

Make your own mind up by reading Break free of this world wide delusion.
