Last weekend, I got a chance to check out some non-traditional web 2.0 products and services. Obviously, the most popular and traditional web 2.0 product is different kinds of social networking or related stuffs. But we will be sadly mistaken if we draw the line just there, web 2.0is something beyond just social networking. “The Simpleology WebCockpit 1.0”, one such product/application, well that’s what I was told.
This not so traditional web 2.0 application designed to allow users to apply the simpleology principles (as taught in the Wall Street Journal best-selling book and the Simpleology 101 online course) in an automated setting. We always see lots of so called methods and opportunities online for changing the future; I don’t need to mention that 97% of them are just a joke. But this app got my attention for two reasons – It’s 100% free (well that’s what they said), and it’s a sort of training rather than any pyramid scam to get rich quick.
WebCockpit 1.0 like a pretty ordinary landing page to some sort of sign up, which we have seen more than often in our virtual life. Still just like a cat, I decided to check it out, just for the sake of curiosity. Now, I am regretting that though.
This so called “Web 2.0? application designed to allow Simpleology’s users to apply the simpleology principles (as taught in the Wall Street Journal best-selling book and the Simpleology 101 online course) in an automated setting. You can find other people’s experience about Simpleology right on its homepage. At the same time, you can get instant access to Simpleology 101 for FREE with no strings attached and no obligation right via their website. All you need to do is just to enter and confirm your name and email address so Simpleology can verify you are a real person. Then they will send you a confirmation email and a link that will reveal everything to you in seconds. So did you see anything similar? Yep, I know what you are thinking. Same old pile of junk in web 2.0 jacket.
After clicking the confirmation, another step passes and then, you’ll prompt to download the “FREE simpleology Software Tools”. Man, who the hell will download a bunch of EXEs these days. The founder Mark Joyner who is a high-flying ex-GI Joe (according to the site) trying to teach people simple science for goodness of life, yet couldn’t manage to get a web Developer to properly design the site. So I hardly believe this is any magic science that can change your life, just another provocation to download some junk and waste few months of your life.
