Architecture Astronauts Are Back

Joel Spolsky - Architecture Astronauts Are Back:

"When I wrote my original complaint about architecture astronauts more than four years ago, it was P2P this and messaging that. [...] Now it's tagging and folksonomies and syndication, and we're all supposed to fall in line with the theory that cool new stuff like Google Maps, Wikipedia, and Del.icio.us are somehow bigger than the sum of their parts. The Long Tail! Attention Economy! Creative Commons! Peer production! Web 2.0!"
