How USB and Web 2.0 are alike

Back in the day…okay, it was 2000….I scoffed at the idea that people would use this USB thing that everyone was talking about.  What good would it do?  How much easier would it be than plugging a printer into LPT1?  Today I have a USB keyboard, a USB memory key, a USB mouse and a USB memory card reader, to name a few.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = “urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office” /> I’m fine with the fact I’ve had to eat my words on that point.  For all my ignorance and lack of forward thinking I have to say I’m pretty happy that I wasn’t in control. So I’ve been hammering Web 2.0 lately.  Yesterday I said something that makes my skin crawl still.  It made me nauseous at the time I said it.  I’ll even admit to the fact that I consciously thought this out before saying it.  The statement was “I’ve been thinking that I might have to use AJAX, or some of it, to do this.” Yes…..I said it…… I’m the Igloo Coder and we ran out of Eskimo Pie, so all I get today is Humble Pie.
