Most people will take Web 2.0 to mean the rise of bloggers.
When the Web 2.0 bubble bursts - when the massive buyouts are done, the millionaires are made and the sites we love today are in the hands of big business - the innovation will grind to a halt, and what's left will be the endless grinding of the marketeering machine.
But hey - at least you'll be closer to your friends. And you'll have free photo hosting, too.

They don't care about what one user is doing, they care about how users relate to other users to better understand effective advertising and target audiences. This simply helps them release better products to gain more market share.
So let's look at this for a minute...better products, better and more useful advertising that I might not be so annoyed at, and all for me getting to sign up for a free piece of software that is insanely useful for me. Wait, they're providing me a free product so they can release products that better deserve my money in the future, all whilst annoying me less in the process...
where do we lose, here?
