  1. 1. One person’s opinion after dabbling with Blogs, Wikis, RSS, Twitter, flickr, Facebook, Mashups, tagging and more… It’s a mad, mad, mad Web 2.0 world Hidden treasure or just more pressure?
  2. 2. http://radar.oreilly.com/archives/2006/12/web_20_compact.html Web 2.0 is the business revolution in the computer industry caused by the move to the internet as platform, and an attempt to understand the rules for success on that new platform. . . . Tim O’Reilly

  4. 5. Tim Berners-Lee: Inventor of the net Interviewer: "You know, with Web 2.0, a common explanation out there is Web 1.0 was about connecting computers and making information available; and Web 2 is about connecting people and facilitating new kinds of collaboration. Is that how you see Web 2.0?" BERNERS-LEE: "Totally not. Web 1.0 was all about connecting people. It was an interactive space, and I think Web 2.0 is of course a piece of jargon, nobody even knows what it means. If Web 2.0 for you is blogs and wikis, then that is people to people. But that was what the Web was supposed to be all along."
