The Most Interesting Question I've Heard All Week

Is Web 2.0 really just about price discrimination?

You know, it sounds silly, but it's a great question. Now, I don't think the writer means price discrimination in it's purely econ sense. But if you take the question that way, it is a deep one indeedy.

Hi Umar:

I guess your post about my entry illustrates the power of a title. As I think was probably clear in my entry, I wrote it while at Where 2.0, and my thoughts, except for the title, were a little all over the place.

You're right that I was only thinking of very specific price discrimination scenarios. Considering the concept in general as regards Web 2.0 leads to some interesting speculations.
