I'm really sick of all these web 2.0 fanboys.
It's like the dotcom boom with slightly older people, or something.
Don't get me wrong. Some of the web applications and services are really cool AND useful.
They may even have a business plan behind them so that they'll actually be around in 6 months time ....
Twitter (it doesn't even deserve a link!) simply isn't.
It's probably the biggest waste of time I've come across in years.
Does anyone really give a damn what other people are doing all the time.
"I just got up"
"I made coffee"
"My girlfriend is having morning sickness"
- stop the lights!! Headline news!
Most people's daily lives are boring.
While we may all do interesting things a lot of what we do is incredibly boring.
This is why I own a DVD player, a TV, books etc.,
Someone telling the world that they are sitting on a bus isn't going to improve my life. If I wanted to know where someone was I could ring them, email them, IM them .. you get the idea..
If I want to know what you are planning to do I can check your calendar / diary (if you have a public one)
Do we really need twitter?
I don't think so.
Others tend to agree
Though all the little fanboys think it's so "cool"
Guys - reality check please.
Just because it's got a "web 2.0" stamp on it does not make it "cool" "useful" or anything else.
If it was "hip" to jump of cliffs would you all do it?
