What does Web2 do for us?


Published on

This presentation looks at "web2" in the context of human experience, suggesting that the social web as extension of "real life" means that it transcends the marketing-biased, "numbered web" hype that has typically surrounded it.

The slides focus particularly on the use of "social web" tools in the enterprise.

I will present these slides at Online Information 4th December 2008. See http://www.online-information.co.uk/online08/seminar_description_ims.html?presentation_id=442 for more information

Then, as the number of users increases, the system becomes even more valuable and is able to attract a wider user base. Joshua Schachter has explained that he built Del.icio.us along these lines - he built an online system where he could keep bookmarks for himself, such that even if no other user joined, it would still be valuable to him. ” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_effect
