“Top Tech Bloggers Define Web 2.0″ « socialTNT

“Top Tech Bloggers Define Web 2.0″ « socialTNT: Top Tech Bloggers Define Web 2.0.″ Last week, all eyes were on San Francisco. Up north in Sonoma, the NewComm Forum debated how to incorporate social media technologies with communications. Down in the city, the tech community rallied around the Web 2.0 Expo. But two years after Tim O’Reilly defined the emerging technologies, many are still left scratching their heads and wondering what the eff Web 2.0 is.

In 2006, Tim O’Reilly, founder of top tech publishing company O’Reilly Media, gave his compact definition of Web 2.0: “Web 2.0 is the business revolution in the computer industry caused by the move to the internet as platform, and an attempt to understand the rules for success on that new platform. Chief among those rules is this: Build applications that harness network effects to get better the more people use them. (This is what I’ve elsewhere called “harnessing collective intelligence.”)

Helge: It's easy to understand the benefits of Web 2.0 and being better connected. Interactivity is a great advantage. We spoke yesterday with a C-rep about the "platform" dimension that is "integrating the various tools into one". Networking is they key. It's much easier to keep in touch with the other guy at the other side of the globe...maybe at the dark side of the moon. The crowd is improving the tools and platforms, the networks become better when there is more people using and developing them.
