re: Please stop giving the web "version numbers". It is wrong.

Also also, "Web 1.0" was a Cambrian explosion of individual technological experimentation (with, admittedly, something of an opportunity cost) that Web 2.0 killed off as soon as it could because vernacular web design isn't easily commoditized. We were not waiting to be spoonfed information from a few corporations: we were connecting with others who had similar interests, we were traversing hand-curated link networks that seemed limitless, we were congregating in old-fashioned forums and building millions of tiny communities, we were tiling tiny borderline-psychedelic jpgs for our homepage backgrounds and writing under hilariously gothy pseudonyms and searching for the perfect spinning flaming skull gifs because nobody had told us we shouldn't do any of that and it was wonderful even when it sucked.
