Webometric Thoughts

Are Mashable’s standards slipping?

I have subscribed to the Mashable feed for quite a while now, but lately I feel as though there has been a downturn in the quality of the posts. Surely today’s “Kevin Rose: Mobile Web is the Next Big Thing” is a particularly low point. If someone had said that mobile web would be the next big thing in the pre-WAP days it would have been a novel proposition worthy of note, but now?

The mobile web has finally reached user’s expectations, and as such it seems a bit late to describe it as the ‘next big thing’. My hope for the mobile web is that there will be a new group of innovators that will be wise enough to ignore their own press. The factor that differentiates between the most successful and the rest of us is less to do with ability and more to do with, for want of a better term, luck.
