Web 2.0 and you
well all the media hype about Web 2.0 is probably off target anyway (as they always do). firstly is "Podcast" which had very little to do with iPods to begin with... *shrug* well let me clarify things for you a little...
Web 2.0 is version two of websites as we know them today. among the more famous websites getting a facelift is Yahoo and BBC. most of you would recognize the new tech which would stamp 2.0: AJAX (ability to load content without changing the page), and presence of the RSS feeds (eases web traffic for specialized content channels).
if u've had a feel of many web 2.0 sites, well let me term it correctly. i'm placing this in a few forums so i can get a nicer wording but i've settled for this personally: Web 2.0, the next generation of websites that concentrate of faster propogation of data; also focuses on mobility and automation.
discuss below the accuracy of this statement, and how web 2.0 works for you. as an extra topic: are forums web 2.0? how can we MAKE them web 2.0?
Re: Web 2.0 and you
The problem with making forums streamless is that its unorganized data. You can rss, xmlhttp all you want and still have a hard time streamlessly finding what you one on these forums. Its no different from using a search engine as Google.
