The Futurist: Will Human Laziness Burst The Web 2.0 Bubble?

The Futurist: Will Human Laziness Burst The Web 2.0 Bubble?: "Right now, the bubble that the Web exists in is not so much a financial bubble as it is a time bubble.

There is still a novelty for a lot of people associated with finding friends on social networking sites, Digging their favorite stories, updating articles about the history of pinball, and leaving comments on their favorite blogs. But that will wear off.

People will revert back to the things they used to do: like Minesweeper and work. And without millions of generous mouse-clickers, most of Web 2.0 is weakened, if not entirely useless.

Whenever it gets here, Web 3.0 may be bigger and better than what we have now, but you can bet that it won’t be foolish enough to rely on the unreliable. And there is nothing more unreliable than human nature."
