Web 2.0: What’s That?

In my zeal to educate myself, I found out about Web 2.0.

Web 2.0 is neither complicated nor technical. Web 2.0 is about collaboration (read wikis, blog), syndication (read RSS, feeds) and mashups (read flickr and maps). It is inexpensive way of sharing information such as, say google spreadsheets. The advantage is that it enables the user, as they say the information flow is “bottom-up.”

You may read more about it here.

Check out this interesting video to explain the differences between Web 1.0 and Web 2.0.

P.S: I can’t believe I added a technology tab in my blog!

    Yea, web 2.0 is simple but people are taking loads of time to figure this out.

    Anyway, just one piece of advice. Don’t make too many categories because there will be some categories about which you might never write again, such as Prashant Tamang and Uma Khurana. For this, I think you should use the new WordPress tags feature. Tags and categories are different things. You can read about it at the following URL :-

    I think what really stands out is the Power to make information ubiquituos… and like this video very aptly puts it.. seperate the content from the formatting… so you can focus entirely.. on creating content! … Web 2.0 shall take care of the rest!

    @Ish…that is a valuable advice. I need to figure a way to rectify it. I saw that tags placeholder, somehow didn’t pay attention to it. Will do.

    @Kapil: Thanks 🙂 , glad that you liked it.

    @Amyth: yes, that is tag line “separate content from formatting”…web 2.0 takes care of it.
