Pardon My Buzzwords

Yesterday’s post about Web/Lib 2.0 made only mild use of some new technology buzzwords, and you probably came across more of them if you followed the links to other stories about Web 2.0 and Lib 2.0. So I couldn’t resist sharing with ACRLog readers a post from Creating Passionate Users that pokes a bit of fun at the Web 2.0 jargon, but also makes the following point: These Web 2.x buzzwords are more technology and business-model focused than user focused, and that’s a recipe for building things that meet the checklist but fail the users. Like the author says, the buzzwords aren’t much use if we can figure what meaning they hold for the users of our services and resources.
