I went to OSCON this week and gave a little talk there. I try not to be cynical, but I have to say that I was disappointed in the level of discourse at the conference sessions, and it got me thinking that things in the valley and in our industry in general are starting to feel a lot like they did last time around.
When you start to think about it, it's pretty easy to see what's happening in software right now as absurd. I mean think about it: we're calling it Web 2.0 for crying out loud. Doesn't anyone remember what happened with Web 1.0? It's like Groundhog Day.
