I was inspired by an e-mail I got which mentioned the idea, and went to build an example that would be light and humorous.
Also, this only checks the root of each site (ie. example.com or www.example.com) - so it won't be terribly accurate.
A random number of prominent Web 2.0 sites and services (read: bookmarks, and ones off the top of my head) were picked and thrown in a list - your score will be determined based on which ones you appear to have visited.
Somewhat regrettably, technology can always be used for good or evil. It's a wild world wide web - walk carefully and carry a well-configured .. firewall .. or something.
To be clear, this is not a new technique; it was probably first done in 2000, perhaps earlier.
Scott would like to add that this is for demonstration and entertainment purposes only, and while he loves the web and building cool stuff, this page is intended primarily to be seen as some light-hearted mockery of the "web 2.0" meme. In his opinion the new web is fun and exciting, but "don't believe the hype."
