Response to: Wrong term - Stop using it

Oh come on! I think you are being overpedantic. Whilst you are no doubt correct in a narrow techincal sort of a way, we need some sort of phrase to describe the new ways in which the web is now being used.

Everyone knows what web 2.0 means and they realise it's not actually a new technology, but rather a new use of it.

The term is now pretty well established and I very much doubt that your dislike of it will change anything.
