  4. 4. with Richard Lalleman | www.focuss.info | richard.focuss@gmail.com | 19 February 2008 Social bookmarking Sharing knowledge with your peers Web 2.0 presages a freeing of data , allowing it to be exposed, discovered and manipulated in a variety of ways distinct from the purpose of the application originally used to gain access. Web 2.0 permits the building of virtual applications , drawing data and functionality from a number of different sources as appropriate. Web 2.0 is participative . The traditional Web has tended to be somewhat one-sided, with a flow of content from provider to viewer. Web 2.0 applications work for the user , and are able to locate and assemble content that meets our needs as users, rather than forcing us to conform to the paths laid out for us by content owners or their intermediaries. Web 2.0 applications are modular , with developers and users able to pick and choose from a set of interoperating components in order to build something that meets their needs. Web 2.0 is about sharing : code, content, ideas. Web 2.0 is about communication and facilitating community . Web 2.0 is about remix . Web 2.0 is smart . Applications will be able to use knowledge of us, where we have been and what we are doing to deliver services that meet our needs. Web 2.0 opens up the Long Tail, making it increasingly cost-effective to service the interests of large numbers of relatively small groups of individuals, and to enable them to benefit from key pieces of the platform while fulfilling their own needs. Web 2.0 is built upon Trust , whether that be trust placed in individuals, in assertions, or in the uses and reuses of data.
