Web 2.0 – What is that???

It’s really interesting to note that Web2.0 is in existence for sometime and most people are aware/not aware about this. I came to know about this when Om mentioned about it in his blog. He says Web2.0

“Is a collection of technologies - be it VoIP, Digital Media, XML, RSS, Google Maps… whatever …. That leverage the power of always on, high speed connections and treat broadband as a platform, and not just a pipe to connect.”

Tim O'Reilly of O'Reilly Media, Inc. says

“Web 2.0 is the network as platform, spanning all connected devices; Web 2.0 applications are those that make the most of the intrinsic advantages of that platform. “

The wikipedia explains better,

“Web 2.0 is a term often applied to a perceived transition of the World Wide Web from a collection of websites to a full-fledged computing platform serving web applications to end users. The proponents of this thinking expect that ultimately Web 2.0 services will replace desktop computing applications for many purposes.”
