O’Reilly and the whole “Web 2.0 Conference” story…
May 29, 2006 | By Peter Bihr |
…is so not worth the discussion. So O’Reilly has registered the servicemark “Web 2.0” for conferences. So what? The servicemark is for conferences only. Web 2.0 is not about conferences in the first place, though. It’s way more than that. Come on, people: The term Web 2.0 is there and it’s there to stay. Not because it’s irreplaceable, but because
everybody all the people involved know what it means. Are you allowed to call your conference “Web 2.0” or not? It’s not important. Just be creative and pick a different name for your conference. Instead of bashing O’Reilly, we should respect Tim & Co for the catchy term, non?
