Todd’s Commentary: Finally, someone more disturbed by Web 2.0 than me!! Okay, honestly I like web 2.0 as a marketing tool, but those in the know understand that the concepts are the same – just packed in design dripping with ajax, round corners, and excessive use of gradients. Jean and I had one of my most enjoyable conversations at the conference on her excellent presentation topic. Jean is an SEO (she just doesn’t know it) – and often does “findability analysis” for website – a great term that I may have to swipe from her:) Our discussion sparked some interesting ideas for me including why SEO is more than just a process, and why it has such a negative connotation outside the circle of people that claim to be it’s artisans.
