  2. 2. 2 What do we mean by Web 1.0? • Do we mean the old way of connecting, as in this video? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjfyAJDckJU&feature=related
  3. 3. 3 Web 1.0 on HowStuffWorks • Is there a Web 1.0? – It’s hard to define Web 1.0 for several reasons. • First, Web 2.0 doesn't refer to a specific advance in Web technology. Instead, Web 2.0 refers to a set of techniques for Web page design and execution. • Second, some of these techniques have been around since the World Wide Web first launched, so it’s impossible to separate Web 1.0 and Web 2.0 in a time line. • The definition of Web 1.0 completely depends upon the definition of Web 2.0.
  4. 4. 4 Basic Differences Web 1.0 to Web 2.0 Web 1.0 vs Web 2.0, the Difference Posted by Saad Hamid on August 18, 2007
  5. 5. 5 Basic Characteristics of Web 1.0 • Web 1.0 sites are static – They contain information that might be useful, but there’s no reason for a visitor to return to the site later. An example might be a personal Web page that gives information about the site’s owner, but never changes. A Web 2.0 version might be a blog or MySpace account that owners can frequently update. • Is there a Web 1.0? by Jonathan Strickland
  6. 6. 6 Basic Characteristics of Web 1.0 • Web 1.0 sites aren’t interactive – Visitors can only visit these sites; they can’t impact or contribute to the sites. Most organizations have profile pages that visitors can look at but not impact or alter, whereas a wiki allows anyone to visit and make changes. • Is there a Web 1.0?
  7. 7. 7 Basic Characteristics of Web 1.0 • Web 1.0 applications are proprietary – Under the Web 1.0 philosophy, companies develop software applications that users can download, but they can’t see how the application works or change it. A Web 2.0 application is an open source program, which means the source code for the program is freely available. Users can see how the application works and make modifications or even build new applications based on earlier programs. • Is there a Web 1.0?
  8. 8. 8 What’s the good of Web 1.0 sites? • They are information resources – Just as with mineral resources, we can search them out and mine the information!
