MEET CHRIS KOCH
A Web 2.0 Disbeliever

In Web 2.0: A Community in Denial CIO Magazine's Christopher Koch apears to be a Web 2.0 disbeliever:

"I'm not seeing real objective evidence that Web 2.0 and more specifically, social networking, are creating real communities. I think community is the code word of denial of the 00s, allowing people to slide past any discussion or proof of real value, just as collaboration was the code word of denial of the 90s for the disastrous wave of online b-to-b exchanges that wasted millions of investors' dollars. Remember Covisint (autos) or World Wide Retail Exchange (consumer goods)?"
