  • March 29, 2007 What is Web 2.0? Presented by Ryan Allis, co-founder of Broadwick Corp.
  • Web 2.0 Is… “ Web 2.0 refers to the second iteration of the web, powered by broadband and mass-access, that has led to the generation of web applications that emphasize user participation and interaction, user-generated content in multiple form, smart design, and online connection between people.”
