Web 2.0 for the suits

Tim O’Rilley has successfully developed the Web2.0 label, and is now exploiting the interest of “Big” Business  by writing a report Web 2.0 Principles and Best Practices: ” with John Musser of

The report based on the now classic web2.0 paper is aimed at a market beyond the normal “alpha geek”, instead O’Reily are for the first time really targeting business strategists, investors, and well.. suits !

For the comments to the original posting of this announcement the reaction has been rather negative to say the least, attacking the high cost of the report. The critism I think misses the point here, this is the type of audience that Gartner or Meta Group sell reports costs thousands of dollars to, and who an wiling to pay from quality foresight.

O’Reilly is a business after all !!
