Saturday Guest Star

I admit to being a bit biased this week. I was looking to give this to Dragonheart as he didn’t think he was funny. I had two other cats that were runners up. I mean, Tripper did have a great comment (but I think Gemini is loyal to Ping). Yao-lin also had a good comment about the potential threat of naked college cats on mycatspace. You know, I was just waiting for Dragonheart to post this particular photo–isn’t it awesome?
Most importantly, this week, Dragonheart asked a question that has been much on my mind as go through this whole web thing. What ever happened to web 1.0? When did we get upgraded to web 2.0?

I’m glad that Gemini is back home and safe.

MyCatSpace? It seems like there are more and more of these social networking sites everyday. What do the techies call it, Web 2.0? I didn’t even know there was a Web 1.0.

When it comes to social networking sites, I don’t think anyone is going to be able to catch up to Catster. They have been around for a long time, in terms of internet time, and they have such a large user base. I don’t know if anyone else will be able to challenge them, unless they offer something new or innovative that Catster doesn’t offer. It also seems a lot of these sites include a journal or blog feature, when many of us have our own stand-alone blogs. It’s too bad more of these sites don’t offer tools to integrate with your existing blog.

I had hoped that perhaps other cats would take up his challenge and so we would generate discussion on this issue of what happened to web 1.0. I don’t remember upgrading. All of a sudden it was there! And what’s up with that? What if I LIKED web 1.0? What if I liked being non social? I am, after all, a cat.

I also, like so many of you, love promoting my blog. Wouldn’t it be nice if I would just plug in a url and folks would get redirected right here? That wouldn’t be so hard and it would be awesome for those of us with established blogs.

Dragonheart is a very smart cat and funnier (although not this week) than he thinks he is. So, now for those of you who ignored his comment: which do you prefer? Web 1.0 or Web 2.0 and WHY? After all, I’m still trying to figure out what the difference is.

Comments

  1. Wtg, Dragonheart! I didn’t say nuffin about it cuz I can’t tell a web 1.0 from a web 2.0. It’s all just innernets to me.
    Purrrrrrs,
    Sanjee

  2. I am a little bit confused about web 2.0 vs. web 1.0, too. I think I like them both.But I am not sure.

    Congratulations to Dragonheart!

  3. Why thank you Chey! 🙂 I am honoured to be your guest star. 🙂 I tried to be thought-provoking this week, although I found Yao-lin’s comment quite amusing, so I expected him to be your guest star.

    Thanks for choosing me. 🙂 That is one of my favourite photos that you decided to use. 🙂

    Good point about Web 1.0. Many cats aren’t very social creatures, so if they don’t want to be part of Web 2.0, will they have that option? Hmm, I think I sense another good question for the presidential candidates. 😉

  4. I didnt even know there was a web 1.0 nevermind web 2.0. It is all greek to me! I just like posting pictures of myself 🙂 I don’t mind being a runner up either cos Dragonheart’s comment is really food for thought and can start a discussion.

    I think that pic of Dragonheart is fabulous, he is such a beautiful boy.

    Also, thanks for adding me to squidoo!!! hurrah!

  5. Mom never gets too deep in this innernet stuff.
    Code still comfruses hur.
    Dragonheart is one of my favorite Mancats, and I like that pitsure.

  6. Hi Gemini, we got the “wheel of Fun” at Target but we’re not too interested in it yet.

  7. YAY Dragonheart!!!! WOOOO HOOOO!! We was akshually going to say somefing about web 1.0 vs web 2.0. We think that web 2.0 is just a government conspiracy to spy on us.

  8. I think they just do it because they want us to upgrade our computers!

  9. YAY Drago!!

  10. I am not into 1.0 or 2.0, the web is the web. But for MyCatSpace, it does seem a bit redundant. Nothing that didn’t already exist with Catster. Plus we have found that some of the features do not work if you use FireFox. I couldn’t get into my e-mail or accept cat pals until I went into IE. So right there they have a bias by not being compatible with both Browsers. Not sure what MAC users are seeing.

  11. Oddly enough Derby, I find that I can see MyCatSpace in Netscape. We have trouble porting our old folders and organizational techniques to Firefox and so keep using an older netscape version. Most things DON’T work in this but MyCatSpace does (MAC user).

  12. Web 1.0? Web 2.0?
    I onwy see some spiderwebs awound mine pwace here.

  13. Hey Chey!

    When are the debates?

    Luv,

    Skittles, The Huntress

  14. I Dare You…!
    Come on over and check it out.

  15. Hello Chey,
    so go and find a canine who does have a blog!!!
    Make friends with a stranger!
    We did not know Lucas before this dare….
    There are a gazillion animals who are blogging – and I thought I could bring us all a bit closer together, maybe….
    Yours truly
    Karl

  16. I think web 2.0 is about socializing and interconnecting like with social sites – I have a social bookmarking button below my blog posts that I got from addthis.com and this way people can connect to friends while bookmarking these articles/posts.

  17. We don’t know anything about web 1.0 or web 2.0 but maybe we might learn something. Very thought provoking by Dragonheart, indeed!

  18. Congratulations to Dragonheart. I don’t know much about internet stuff, but I think web 1.0 was when the average computer user just looked at what was there and didn’t really participate in creating websites, etc. Web 2.0 is when everybody who is interested can get involved with creating content on the web without having to be a real computer geek.

  19. I asked one of my more geekier friends to explain such things to me…. he pointed me here:
