How simple is Web 2.0? November 11, 2008

I like making sure we draw lines between simple and accessible, but could Web 2.0 really be as easily explained as this?

Is Web 2.0 really this simple?

The only fault I’m thinking is the x100 – connections are still one to one, just on a mass scale.

Image courtesy of my mate Alex – if anyone knows the original source please let me know so I can give proper credit.

**Update** Turns out I thought the image must have come from someone other than Alex, when it did in fact originate with him. This is not because I thought him not capable of extraodinarily insightful cartoons, more so because, much like Jesus having walked the Earth, the idea deities occasionally walk among us is somewhat hard to believe. There you go. Alex White, genius personified!

anyway, there are heaps of things wrong with this diagram. What it is really trying to do is talk about conversational networks versus brand>audience comm’s. and this may not be necessary facilitated at the brands web site… etc. etc.

*ahem* Alex WHITE, genius, demi-god, friend to you and I, how’s that? 🙂

By the way, ALEX WHITE will be joining us at Beersphere on Thursday.

Come come people, don’t be shy!

Mr. White the beersphere when I have the chance to drink with the god himself, I am not at! Well done my man and look forward to many more cartoons that Dave can steal and put on his interwebs! 😉
