In Washington D.C. nobody really knows what web 2.0 is. 2. In Silicon Valley I am a "User Experience Designer". On the east coast I am just an internet person who designs websites. 3. In Silicon Valley a blog is an extension of who you are. If you don't have your own Blog or website there's something wrong with you. In Washington D.C. blogs are how you spy on government officials.
