Web 2.0 isn't dead, but Web 3.0 is bubbling up  —  Nick Carr was at this best synthesizing the week that was-the Web 2.0 Summit-and he wasn't even there.  I agree with other bloggers, commentators, writers, reporters, pundits, podcasters, vloggers, journalists and user generated content creators …

Web 2.0 + 1  —  I spent three days this past week at the Web 2.0 Conference in SF.  For the most part I felt like it was a waste of time (and $2500).  The time spent in the halls was great, seeing people I know and connecting with interesting people.  I didn't need the conference to figure out that Video is the new Black.

There is no Web 3.0, part, uh, 2  —  John Markoff writes in the NY Times that Web 3.0 is coming.  Apparently he missed my post last week, for There is no Web 3.0.  The funny thing about my summation last year (Web 2.0 is Made of People!) is the web has always been that way — and always will.

Zune  —  I just sent this letter to Microsoft.  It was a very difficult thing to do:  —  Sunday November 11, 2006  —  Hey Paul, we are going to back out of the Zune.net promo that is supposed to launch [deleted date].  —  I have been losing sleep over it and decided this is just not going to be right for Rocketboom.

Wii console manual reveals its secrets  —  Since all four of us can't play Zelda at the same time, we passed the Wii-less hours by poring over the 69 page "systems and settings" manual that came with the Wii (not to be confused with the 105-page, trilingual "system setup" manual that's also included).

Google Earth in 4D  —  Google skipped right past the third dimension and landed directly in the fourth (time) by offering historical maps on Google Earth.  Now you can travel back in time — for example, I am looking at the globe of 1790.  Don't expect detailed high resolution photography from days gone by …
