Web 2.0 Hype

So the Web 2.0 conference is going to be taking place in San Francisco this week and seems to be generating a lot of buzz. In particular people are debating all over the place what Web 2.0 means.

A lot of people call it an empty buzz word. It is obviously a buzz word, but I think there is some meat behind it and that the value of a definition lies in helping people who have never heard of most of these new technologies understand what is going on.

Personally if I were to try and explain it to my mother then I would simply say this:

Web 2.0 is simply people beginning to harness the power of the web as a communication and collaboration tool, enabling the efficient sharing of information from person to person, person to computer, and computer to computer.

Just my thoughts on it.
