   RE: [xml-dev] RE: What Does Web 2.0 Mean Redux (WAS RE: [xml-dev] XTECH

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I made that up.  It may be derivative from the quotation 
"The wheel grinds slow but exceedingly small." or something 
like that.

Again, the best I can do explaining the town hall is at 
my blog http://lamammals.blogspot.com  To get more open 
systems, sell more open systems.  It seems to be working 
and the environment is shaping up to favor that.  Just 
remember that there will always be customers who will 
pay more to own more.  Some customers want to use web 
plumbing but not of necessity, web applications delivered 
to them just in time.  They are not common customers so 
pick your demographic.

Without marketing there is no market.  A truism but usually 
accurate.  Web 2.0 is another marketing brand but I think 
what Graham is saying is it will accrue meaning for some 
set of people who need a sign.  As they apply their minds 
to sustaining applications under that sign, in that 
sign, they will *declare* victory.  As it said on my 
Dad's cigarette package, "in hoc signo vinces".

"Patience while the wheel grinds but keep turning 
the handle. "

If you made that up I want to quote you... if you are quoting I want to
know the source!!!
