Where convergence is seen as a good thing

Something to watch for (?)

The press release says:

The next step in social media has finally arrived, and it is

"Websites like,,,, and any other hot Web 2.0 property are all very limited," says William Mobley, CEO of Web2Corp. "They're social media, yes, but they only deal with one aspect of media. is a photo site, YouTube does video, and eBay is auctions and sales. You don't have convergence, you don't have synergy of content. (...) "

We've moved beyond Web 2.0 and are launching Web 2.1. We're finally beginning to approach what Tim O'Reilly calls the "Semantic Web". The Internet's about to be revolutionized, and we're starting by inviting media, major tech writers, and bloggers to come see what the next big thing is."

Methinks I'm getting cynical in my old age.
