What is Web2.0 ?

19th of September 2005 by admin

Richard McManus (author of Read/WriteWeb blog) has a great definition on his Zdnet Blog

“Web 2.0 is social, it’s open (or at least it should be), it’s letting go of control over your data, it’s mixing the global with the local. Web 2.0 is about new interfaces – new ways of searching and accessing Web content. And last but not least, Web 2.0 is a platform – and not just for developers to create web applications like Gmail and Flickr. The Web is a platform to build on for educators, media, politics, community, for virtually everyone in fact!

Web 2.0 is all of the above things – don’t let anyone tell you it’s one or the other definition.”
