funny quote on web 2.0

Q U O T E D



"Not believe in Web 2.0! You might as well not believe in fairies! You might get your papa to hire Tim O'Reilly to come over to your house and explain Web 2.0 to you, but even if Tim O'Reilly showed up and you didn't understand what the heck he was talking about, what would that prove? So what if nobody can actually explain Web 2.0 without using techno babble and business buzzwords? That is no sign that there is no Web 2.0. The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see -- and that's why they develop buzzwords. Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that's no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders there are unseen and unseeable in the world."

-- Rex Hammock explains the mystery behind the elusive concept of Web 2.0 to a young reader

While reading the funny comment about Web 2.0 I had to laugh because I was remembered to my presentation topic and my difficulties to explain all the technical issues without using to many buzzwords! ;-) But this little quote also contains a serious truth about life in general that I share: "The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see" -
To use this as a reason why they developed so many buzzwords is a great idea!
