Web 2.0 – My way

Web 2.0 is the new wave of internet services which provide the end user services normally provided by a “fully loaded” PC. This includes services like word processing, presentations etc. – all on the web, directly from your web browser.

Well, as always, Microsoft are sticking their noses into this area of computing too. They launched Office Live and Windows Live recently. But trust me, there’s nothing live about this. Microsoft’s services are just another way of making more money.

But here’s how I see Web 2.0 – a community-based platform with personal websites, blogs, forums, chat and sharing of knowledge. A place where people can have fun and express themselves freely, without pesky corporations sniffing out their hideouts.

Web 2.0 will see an explosion of services similar to Last.fm and StumbleUpon, community-created and community maintained services similar to Open Directory and Wikipedia.

The main target of Web 2.0 will be creating a place where people can be people. It will help the users interact and make new friends, share knowledge, thoughts, beliefs…….anything! This is what I think Web 2.0 must be all about.

Please spread the word about Web 2.0!

    […] Ran into this post today, and it got me thinking about Web 2.0. Web 2.0 is a buzzword that has picked up steam very quickly. As far as I can tell, the exceedinly prevalent use of the term is not more than 2-3 months old. Obviously, Google’s recent success has a lot to do with it and there are examples of Web 2.0 floating all around the place. […]
