Web 2.0, a definition on request

Categories: Reflexions, web 2.0

Well, posting the Web 2.0 video definitely generated a lot of traffic. :-) I got a lot of requests on what exactly Web 2.0 stands for. So maybe the video was NOT  that good after all :-(. Web 2.0 is a term that is now widely used to address the new web tendencies including community building, blogs, mashed data, wikis, RSS and social bookmarking. Tim O’Reilly from Media and MediaLive International coined the name during a conference on bleeding edge Web concepts.
Web 2.0 differentiates itself from C.E.R.N.’s good old  World Wide Web by a swift informal interaction between Internet communities, web visitors, virtual worlds (aka Second Life), businesses and dynamic content providers. New features like Ajax, XML and RSS enable quick mashing of content.
Hey, if not clear, try Wikipedia. It’s said to be a Web 2.0 start-up *lol*

  6. I have to admit that your own weblog is highly insightful. I’ve been spending a large amount of free time over the last couple weeks seeking at just what is in existence in accordance with simple fact that I am getting ready to launch a blog. The important information you have put on here is more or less to the point. It just sounds so mystifying with reference to all the solutions that are you can get, but I love the way your appears to be. Gotta fall in love with where modern technology has come through the past 10 yrs.
