5. Web 2.0 : Term is widely defined, used & interpreted
Essentially, not a web of textual publication,
A matrix of dialogues, not a collection of monologues.
Allow for collaboration and sharing of information
Are easy to use
But a web of multi-sensory communication
A user-centered Web in ways it has not been thus far
Encourage users to help build the information environment

This architecture is based on social software where users generate content, rather than simply consume it, and on open programming interfaces that let developers add to a web service or get at data.

An attitude not a technology.
Paul's Web 2.0

Permits the building of virtual applications
applications are modular
is about sharing:
is about communication and facilitating community
is about remix
opens up the Long Tail
Participative--blogs, sharing files, or equivalent
Amazon customer reviews, e.g.
Building of virtual applications--drawing data and functionality from a number of different sources as appropriate. These applications tend to be small, they tend to be relatively rapid to deploy
E.g., various applications of Google Maps
Remix!perhaps the most important conceptalso called mashups
Find the relevant snippets and make them ours as well as the originators
use knowledge of us to deliver services that meet our needs
Deliver rich user experiences in Web 2.0
Leveraging the long tail through customer self-service
Web 2.0 is built upon Trust , whether that be trust placed in individuals, in assertions, or in the uses and reuses of data.
