The Web 2.0 Drinking Game

No financial or technological meme worth its name has truly reached its cultural apogee until there is a decent associated drinking game. The “long tail” reached that point months ago, and now apparently Web 2.0 is at the same place:

When someone says…

  • Web 2.0 – take a drink
  • Long Tail – finish your drink
  • Open Source Stack – take a shot
  • Monetizing – take a drink
  • Productizing – take a drink
  • Business Models (plural) – take a shot
  • Ruby on Rails – everyone trade drinks
  • Ajax/AJAX – pour out half your drink


  1. Well, that would stink, I fear no one would ever get really good buzz. (re: Ajax)
