it all the Time - Really, What is Web 2.0?

Web 2.0 is a Social and Video Web
The idea of human society
merging with a network of computers might seem weird, but it is a fair description of what is happening in our society today.

our usage of the Internet -- from how much time we spend on it at home to how we are increasingly carrying around a version
of it in our pocket -- but we are changing the way we interact with it.
This has led us to a social web where we aren't just getting information dumped to us from
a computer, but we are reaching out to connect with other people to hear what they have to say on a subject.

allows websites to harness the collective power of people because the more difficult a website is to use, the less people
that are willing to use it. So, to truly harness that collective power, websites must be designed to be as simple as possible
so as not to get in the way of people sharing information.

What is Web 2.0 According to Everyone?
Web 2.0 ideas have taken
on a life of their own. They have taken people and put them on the web, and the idea of a social web has transformed the way
we think and the way we do business.
The idea of sharing information is being valued as much as the idea of proprietary information.
Open Source, which has been around for many years,
is becoming a large factor. And the web link is becoming a form of cash.
