  3. 6. <ul><li>Web 2.0 </li></ul><ul><li>Wikipedia </li></ul>Web 1.0 Britannica
  4. 7.

  5. 8. Web 2.0 Some example applications <ul><li>Wiki’s ( Limburg Genealogy Wiki *): share knowledge </li></ul><ul><li>Flickr ( Picture Australia ): share pictures </li></ul><ul><li>YouTube : share movies </li></ul><ul><li>Rss ( Netvibes , ArchivesBlogs ): share news </li></ul><ul><li>Del.icio.us ( tags ): share favorites </li></ul><ul><li>Mashup ( Crime map *): combining information </li></ul><ul><li>* Dutch website </li></ul>

  9. 12.
