      What's the purpose of this ugly thing?

      I think that's the real artistic question that emerges from this representation of some primitive god.
      (seriously now, don't people have better things to do than ranking their favorite Web 2.0s on an schoolgirl's style star?)

      Exaakax, why so grumpy? I'm afraid there's no artistic question here because this isn't art. I ought to know--I made it.

      And there's no actual ranking--the logos are just popular examples of the services on the arms.

      I didn't think of starfish but instead came up with green blob monster thingy... which is much clearer isn't it?

      I like this picture for two reasons:

      1. It combines the diversity of social media with the image of a starfish. And all of you who have read "The spider and the starfish" know why I'm enthousiastic about that.

      2. Second is that the word "conversions" sounds a lot like "conversations" which is crucial for social media. But conversions also sounds almost litteraly like "convergence", which in my humble opinion is happening to all media, big or small. A few screens and a lot of apps and conversations!

      Love it, when there's more to this than meets the eye!

      Hi , this is a good visual tool. In keeping with creative commons, i have used this image in a presentation on classroom 2.0, and have referenced you on the slide. If you would like me to remove it, please let me know. Good work
