i mentioned in quite a few posts, especially this one that the latest buzzwords to hit the market were the web 2.0 and categorization and stuff. that time i wasn't too sure what they were, just like a lot of people right now are absolutely clueless as to what the terms actually mean or what they stand for. today, i'll try to explain what they really mean, and how it works. that post is important, because many aspects of web 2.0 are mentioned in that, but i'll quote them here too.
A website could be said to be built using Web 2.0 technologies if it featured a number of the following techniques:
- CSS, semantically valid XHTML markup, and Microformats
- Unobtrusive Rich Application techniques (such as Ajax)
- Syndication of data in RSS/Atom
- Aggregation of RSS/Atom data
- Clean and meaningful URLs
- Support posting to a weblog
- REST or XML Webservice APIs
- Some social networking aspects
- Java Web Start
- The site should not act as a walled garden - it should be easy to get data in and out of the system.
- Users should own their own data on the site
- Purely Web based - most successful Web 2.0 sites can be used almost entirely through the browser
- Applicable to an emerging generation of game development, proposed as thin games
sites such as del.icio.us and flickr,. which offer the concept of social bookmarks, tagging, organising and sharing are proper examples of what web 2.0 aims to do and achieve. it also increases the worth of the internet. investors value the internet at over a trillion dollars (thats a lot of money!). corporations such as google and yahoo are the forefront of the web 2.0 age, and hence are helping facilitate the start and growth of the adoption of these standards by others. web 2.0 also has the potential to revolutionize the way that knowledge workers work within the enterprise. web office is a platform of web 2.0 based tools that knowledge workers will use to efficiently communicate and work with large groups of internal and external partners.
