I was totally blown away by this, I am familiar with mashups, but what this guy did puts it in a total new perspective. He took small clips from YouTube where people play an instrument, and then build incredible tracks and videos from these clips. You just have to see and listen to believe, but, I can tell you: this is really incredible. Is this the emergence of a new Music Genre?

The “six ways to make Web 2.0 work” article has been getting a lot of retweets on twitter, and a lot of references from different blogs (footnote: really interesting to see the echo-chamber that blogs and twitter have become to be when you research something like this, some even repeat the entire article with embedded “we agree” additions throughout the text). The thing is: I don’ t get it. Where is the real relation with Web 2.0? Are any of these points mentioned specifically related to Web 2.0? Or can I replace Web 2.0 with any modern new technology? Although the answer might already be clear from the way the question is phrased, my answer is: Yes.
I think all the six points mentioned can be valid for any technology introduction, that is: if the introduced technology is going to be used by humans . Do a check yourself, and you will probably agree. the reason that I say “can be valid” is that some might not necessarily be true for some occasions, and other points/rules might pop-up for others. My current employer has developed a methodology that structures the synergy that is required between People and Technology in order to achieve the desired business outcomes. So far, the methodology has mainly been put to practice for introducing the New World of Work in Enterprises, but due to its generic nature it can be used for any situation where the synergy between people and technology is crucial.
Agree / disagree? Let me know, I am interested in feedback on this …. !
