  • 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
  • Yes… and?
    • It’s a platform
    • It harnesses collective intelligence
    • Data can be used and re-used in many ways
    • Users are directly involved with development
    • It’s not limited to a single device
    • A rich user experience
      • Tim O’Reilly ‘ What is Web 2.0?’
  • Yes… but?
    • “ It’s vacuous marketing hype”
    • “ Web 2.0 is totally silly”
    • “ Meaningless”
    • “ is made entirely of pretentious self serving morons.”
