whatisweb20 small What is Web 2.0?   a sensible attempt at definition

There’s a bunch of ‘pundits’ out there trying to make sense of this mysterious Web 2.0 malarky, but this Web 2.0 definition is actually one that I think actually works well.

 “But that’s not fair!” you may be protesting.” Everyone knows what it is. It’s about social networking, user-generated content, glowing drop-shadowed logos, blogs, AJAX, mashups, and tagging. It’s the next revolution on the Web!” Baloney. The biggest mistake most of the tech press, Web 2.0 boosters, cyber pundits, and digital hipsters make is to confuse Web 2.0 products with the root changes that made them happen.
