Web 2.0 doesn't necessarily mean entertainment

All of the entertainment sites listed in this article are not part of the Web 2.0 definition. Although online collaboration is indeed part of the Web 2.0, "Pulling the plug on Web 2.0" appears more directed toward the entertainment sites than the other defined aspects of Web 2.0. By citing Web 2.0, the article becomes slurred through ignorance of what it actually is. Web 2.0 really doesn't formally encompass the entertainment sites as listed. The article is misleading.
