Web2.0 Is Now English

The one millionth word in English dictionary is Web2.0, defined as “the next generation of web products and services, coming soon to a browser near you”. The unfortunate part is soon that next generation is soon going to move on to something else, and continue further. The phrase Web 2.0 itself has been confusing. Its popularity is born more out of marketing than anything else. It was already bad enough that it was exposed to the people, and I think it is a disaster that it is part of the English dictionary now.

    I wonder if “no0b” is in the dic’. The def’ would be “One who thinks web2.0 is a word”
