Web 2.0 - What does it mean anyway?

Good Question!

While I don’t pretend to know what Web 2.0 really is, and I certainly can’t articulate it in a couple of paragraphs - I do have a firm view on what it is not.

Web 2.0 is not AJAX
Web 2.0 is not Ruby on Rails
Web 2.0 is not the Atlas framework
Web 2.0 is not a technology.

As far as what Web 2.0 means for Intergen and our clients, this article on the Boxes and Arrows website does a pretty good job of explaining what Web 2.0 means to the Enterprise - and potentially how we could learn to understand it better, use it within Intergen, and offer better solutions to clients.

Lastly, it may all be bullshit - but what if it’s not.. Some NZ companies are already adopting Web 2.0 technology and values - TradeMe being a notable example - Do us as Solution Providers want to continue to be leaders? Or watch our competitors pass us by…
