THE WEB IS DEAD? Blogs and RSS are also dead, as so many 'visionaries' are preaching? Good, says Seth Godin:
Dead means that they are no longer interesting to the drive-by technorati. Dead means that the curiousity factor has been satisfied, that people have gotten the joke.I couldn't agree more.
These people rarely do anything of much value, though.
Great music wasn't created by the first people to grab an electric guitar or a synthesizer. Great snowboarding moves didn't come from the guy who invented the snowboard... No one thinks Gutenberg was a great author, and some of the best books will be written long after books are truly dead.
Only when an innovation is dead can the real work begin.
