This presentation looks at various notions of “Web2-ness” within a wider context of a more wired web.
Although not the true “Semantic Web”, practitioners argue that many of the sites and services available today have the hallmarks of connectedness which Berners-Lee originally suggested would ultimately make up the next phase of the internet.
In the cultural context, this raises questions and outlines possibilities about how best to develop our web products so as to best capitalise on the notion that the power of the web is in sharing, and not – as has been typical to date - in silos.
The major issues tend to show themselves in two ways, and this presentation will focus on both: Firstly, how best to capture and share the voices of our users, and secondly how the power of the distributed web can help us cheaply and easily improve our offerings.
