Orlando, FL (PRWEB) August 16, 2006
Some people might say there is an element of risk in naming your company for a specific version of the web’s development lifecycle. Bill Mobley isn’t one of them. Mobley, Chairman and CEO of Web2 Corp recently announced the name change of his company and wavers not a bit in the wisdom of using a term (Web2) that will certainly become passe.
According to Mobley, Web2.0 established a new mentality for the Internet that was enabled by open source technologies, broadband connectivity and a philosophy of sharing. “Look at the trends from MySpace to Flickr to YouTube, they are all cool new adaptations that change the way people use the Internet for their leisure purposes. In many ways they are simply novel diversions. When you ask what job it is that they perform, you find very little beyond entertainment or social connectivity….both fleeting and fickle markets. The technology adaptations are interesting, but the value is suspect and the quality of the benefits is very shallow. We are seeing signs of fatigue now…not unlike new toys at Christmas. Yes, there are millions of registered users for many of the social products, but how many are truly active? We see Web2.1 as the application of these same technologies for higher-order uses. We ask how the same features be adapted to deliver more compelling solutions to practical problems?”
Web2 Corp has identified several very large market opportunities for the use of Web2.0 technologies. “Take the best functions of the best products out there, combine them, simplify, simplify, simplify and offer them at a great price that delivers a good margin. That is our Web2 Corp. formula.” The company has introduced an ecommerce package that targets the small business operator. It integrates all the features a business needs to launch, grow and thrive online in one easy to use package. A simple website builder delivers professional results with integrated shopping cart and payment processing. “We have tried to eliminate all the points of friction and make engaging the Internet as a business tool a painless process,” Says Andre Forde, Chief Operating Officer and Head of Product Development. “This product focuses the power of technology on simplification as opposed to adding advanced features that people rarely use. Less is just enough”
Mobley claims that we have been in Web2.0 for some time. “We are now on the cusp of Web2.1 which blurs the concept of the Internet with wireless “anywhere access”. Some people have been saying that this is Web3.0, but that is absolutely wrong. Web3.0 has not yet been imagined. We have many more versions of incremental improvement to Web2.0 before we reach that realm.” When asked about what form Web3.0 might take Mobley suggests that integration of biotech and the Internet are likely where technology embedded in the human body will become a viable product, “but clearly there are some moral and philosophical issues to contend with before that is a reality.” In Mobley’s view, we will be in Web2.x mode for years to come. “No one has really mastered Web2.1 yet. We have quite a long time before Web2 becomes passé…and by that time the term Web will likely be passé as well.
