Two point oh? Or zero?

by Dave on February 4, 2008

in web 2.0

The BBC are coming up with guidance on how staff should pronounce the phrase “Web 2.0″. Is it, for example:

  • Web two point oh
  • Web two point zero
  • Web two dot oh
  • Web two
  • etc etc etc…

I have always been a two point oh kinda guy myself, which puts me in line with most folk. I do think there is a nice simplicity to just web two,  but it misses the essential nerdiness of the extra version number, redundant as it may be.

What’s your preferred pronunciation?

two point zero – don’t mix your numbers and letters!

Heh. That’s what Mrs DavePress says. Only, whenever I give my phone number, I always say oh instead of zero, or nought.

Maybe I’v just got some sort of really specific dyslexia…
