Well, here it is, post SXSW and I've been nowhere near Austin.
Not that, as a native Austinite, I really get hyped up about SXSW. All these people invade the city and make me wait Really Long Times to go to my favorite restaurants, and all the bars charge exorbitant amounts of cover for live music, which'd be different if they didn't normally have live music year-round.
So, I have a problem with the hype surrounding "Web 2.0" , which is mainly that it's not as new as everyone claims. Definitely, it's a new ballpark from the first round of websites, which were (for the most part) static, clunky, and non-interactive.
