    • Web 2.0 Defined The network as platform, spanning all connected devices. --Tim O'Reilly, 2004 (founder of O'Reilly Media)
    • Web 2.0 Defined ...describes the changing trends in the use of World Wide Web technology and web design that aim to enhance creativity, communication, secure and powerful information sharing, collaboration and functionality of the web...
    • Web 2.0 Defined quot;Web 2.0 applications are those that make the most of the intrinsic advantages of that platform: delivering software as a continually-updated service that gets better the more people use it, consuming and remixing data from multiple sources, including individual users, while providing their own data and services in a form that allows remixing by others, creating network effects through an quot;architecture of participation,quot; and going beyond the page metaphor of Web 1.0 to deliver rich user experiences.quot;
    • Connecting People to Stuff 2.0 and Archives and Special Collections
    • Blogs
    • Blog Defined quot;A blog (a contraction of the term quot;Web logquot;) is a Web site, usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. quot;Blogquot; can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.quot; Blogs

    • Photo & Video Sharing
    • Photo Sharing Defined Photo sharing is the publishing or transfer of a user's digital photos online, thus enabling the user to share them with others (whether publicly or privately). This functionality is provided through both websites and applications that facilitate the upload and display of images. The term can also be loosely applied to the use of online photo galleries that are setup and managed by individual users, including photoblogs.
