The term 2.0 jumps the shark

There’s been an interesting thread on the Web4Lib listserv about using the term Library 2.0 (which comes from the term Web 2.0). In the discussion, Tim Spalding (creator of Library Thing) said:

I don’t think Web 2.0 is a fad, but it’s clear the term has jumped the shark when the media starts talking about powerful marijuana as “Pot 2.0”.

Of course, everything will change when we have Pot 3.0, the Semantic Pot.

Which was so funny (to this web geek) I just had to share.

And for those of you who might need an explanation, here are links to jumping the shark and the semantic web.
