Six years have passed since the global news coverage of Sofia's abduction to Syria and she has now been waiting for more than two years for the Broward County Court's decision in Florida to evict the occupants of her home, so she can return to the U.S. and "finally" resume her normal life at the age of eight. In 2011, her mother's Florida Attorney Susan R. Brown convinced Honorable Judge Arthur Birken to give temporary custody of Sofia to her mother; months later Sofia ended up in Syria with her mom and stayed there for several years until the civil war broke.

Soon all Web 2.0 events will either be "cancelled," or their organizers will make a last-minute attempt to pull together a last show, but throw in the towel after that, IMHO. If they buck all business logic, and go ahead with their final scheduled Web 2.0 events, they'll lose millions of dollars and find out after their last show that Web 2.0 was DOA (as a software business model) anyway.
