... It just seems all too fickle.
Like data and what we produce means nothing.
Maybe I'm thinking of things like Twitter and another blog post I recently read.
But it seems like the the whole 'Web 2.0' formula was/is:
- Make a site
- Get users
But what if the users never come. By 'users' we mean a crap load of users to be viable.
Perhaps then you shut up shop? I mean it goes like this:
- Launch: June 2007
- Open to public: 2008
- Shut up shop: December 15, 2008
What happens to your users? Couldn't you have just transitioned/merged the service over to your new owners? If it's so cheap to set up a Web 2.0 site, can't you just keep it running?
Our Facebooks our fickle lives.
