  • 2. What is Web 2.0?
    • Let’s just not go there shall we?
    • Definitions are less important than what you can do with it
    • Oh, if you really insist…
  • 3. What is Web 2.0?
    • Web 2.0 is a term often applied to a perceived ongoing transition of the World Wide Web from a collection of websites to a full-fledged computing platform serving web applications to end users. Ultimately Web 2.0 services are expected to replace desktop computing applications for many purposes.
      • Wikipedia entry

  • 11.
    • Web 1.0 was tracking information down
    • Web 2.0 is having information come to you
  • 12.

    • Web 2.0 is getting the answer out there quickly
  • 13.
    • Web 1.0 was slow transfer rates
    • Web 2.0 is about broadband

    • Web 1.0 was about limitations

  • 18. Yes… but?
    • “ It’s vacuous marketing hype”
    • “ Web 2.0 is totally silly”
    • “ Meaningless”
    • “ is made entirely of pretentious self serving morons.”
    • “ a lot of thin but very hot air blown at you by those who are convinced that having nothing to say is by no means a good reason to shut up.”
  • 19. So…
    • Is it a question of degrees of difference?
  • 20. Or…
    • A difference of kind? (Is it or isn’t it a fad?)
  • 21.  
  • 22. OK… so how can I use it?
    • Weblogs
      • Create a library weblog
      • Additional or new library resources
      • Introduce members of staff
      • Use it as a repository of data and information by using categories and tags
      • Don’t regard a weblog as a diary – it’s an important website in its own right…
  • 23.  
  • 24. Weblogs continued…
    • Use the weblog RSS feed on the site home page as a news feed
    • Encourage people to add the feed to their start page or RSS reader

    • <p><a href=&quot;http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/6385487.stm&quot; title=&quot;BBC NEWS | Technology | Google charges for web programs&quot;>Google charges for web programs</a>. Well, this is all over the blogs and news at the moment - my link goes to the BBC version of the story. No great surprise here really; Google is going to start selling a premium version of their email, calendar, word processing and messaging package. It'll cost £27 or 40€ or $50 which includes more storage, phone help and 99.9% uptime (which is actually downtime of about 9 hours per year if you don't want to work it out yourself) and it'll be advertisement free.</p>
    • <p>Google is of course saying that it's not an attack on Microsoft.</p>
