i'm ready for web 3.0

Check out this Web 2.0 Logo Generator. Unfortunately, it's not as good as this Emo Band Name Generator, but still clever. It makes its point, too: the plethora of homogenous "next-YouTube" sites are all basically the same crap (see TechCrunch for ongoing coverage of the same ideas repeated over and over with different venture capital each time).

On the flipside, now I have an excuse to label this post as follows:

Every site wants to be a social network now.

Even The Hype Machine (if you're not familiar, it's a music blog aggregator) is introducing a social networking element.

Why would I want to have a search-able profile on an aggregator site. Just give me my free mp3s and let me go!

There's already a billion sites and services that claim to find other individuals with similar taste in music: Amazon, iTunes, last.fm, even you're Zune will do it!

I tend to find those people on my own. Ya know, in person? I call them "friends."

don't be so dismissive zp! i'm not familiar with the hype machine, but socially networked news sounds genius to me ... i don't use last.fm to find people with the same taste in music as me ... the profiles just give me more music to listen to that's similar to what i like ... the same thing with news would be great

Good post on PSFK: Why does everyone want to be the next YouTube?
