Web 2.0 Is Much More About A Change In People and Society Than Technology

During a podcast interview last week, the father of the Web Tim Berners-Lee offered his view on the term “Web 2.0”, and refered to it asI think Web 2.0 is of course a piece of jargon, nobody even knows what it means.”

There is an obvious uproar over this but He is actually right when he says “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.” Even though “Web” was supposed to meant for a mutual interaction of Individuals, it never became one. So what we are seeing now is a pure and normal (arguably slow) progression of the web.

I really liked the list that O’Rielly put together last year that clearly demonstrate some key characterstics of Web 2.0.
