Cringeley on Web 2.0

Robert X. Cringeley writes about Web 2.0, focusing on the ideas of metacontent, distributed authorship, and aggregation. Too bad he doesn’t mention microformats, especially when he refers to
“the Tower of Babel effect in which every metadata tagger can use his or her own tagging system, none of which are necessarily readable by the others”, exactly the sort of problem that Micoformats aim to solve.

    I like how Cringeley shines a more practical light on where web technology is heading for the next few years. But, as you said, I think he’s missing a lot without thinking of microformats in his solution.
