This is an article which was run in yesterday’s Irish Examiner (Friday June 2nd 2006) in the wake of the controversy surrounding CMP/O’Reilly’s trade marking of the term Web 2.0.
The picture of me included in the article shows just how much the stress of the last couple of weeks has aged me. I can see now, as I am growing older, that I’m starting to look more and more like my father.
Hang on a sec, that is a photo of my father! It seems that, despite my supplying a photo by email for the Examiner and despite spending around 20 minutes posing for photos with one of their staff photographers (laptop on your left shoulder, ok now try on your right…), they still managed to use the wrong photo!
Ironically some of the comments during the Web 2.0 debate lamented the fact that bloggers weren’t taking the trouble to be as accurate as main stream media! Hmmm.
