Web 2.0 – I Didn’t Know There was a 1.0?

There has been shift from a World Wide Web that is “read only” to a Web that is being described as the “Read Write Web.” Instead of content that was for the most part static, we are starting to see the ability to remix content in different ways, in order to suit our needs. The Web is evolving to become more like an area for social and idea networking. The web surfer negotiates the connections within a social or idea network, exchanges bits of content, creates something new, and then the cycle begins again. XML content, but RSS and Atom feeds in particular, is increasingly becoming a standard for sharing data between these web applications.

If you look at the idea of publishing web pages, we would consider the read web as something that was more inclined for the geeks. Where there was some need to understand a server-side language, use FTP, maybe html, or a number of tools to create and publish web content. Now, in less than ten minutes you could set-up a weblog on Blogger.com and have your first idea posted. It would probably take you longer to come up with the ideas for the first post than to setup the weblog. I would call this a transformation from geek to sleek.
