What Is Web 2.0?


Web 2.0 definition and explanation of the term - this paper sums up the learnings of Web 2.0 conference that started it all.

"The concept of "Web 2.0" began with a conference brainstorming session between O'Reilly and MediaLive International. Dale Dougherty, web pioneer and O'Reilly VP, noted that far from having "crashed", the web was more important than ever, with exciting new applications and sites popping up with surprising regularity. What's more, the companies that had survived the collapse seemed to have some things in common. Could it be that the dot-com collapse marked some kind of turning point for the web, such that a call to action such as "Web 2.0" might make sense? We agreed that it did, and so the Web 2.0 Conference was born."

This article explains what Web 2.0 means. It is one of the first attempts and, perhaps, the origins of term Web 2.0 itself.
