Forwarded to me by our collegue in Global Services, Rob Berini: "Typically, the name Web 2.0 is used by computer programmers to refer to a combination of a) improved communication between people via social-networking technologies, b) improved communication between separate software applications--read "mashups"-- via open Web standards for describing and accessing data, and c) improved Web interfaces that mimic the real-time responsiveness of desktop applications within a browser window."
Such descriptions help answer the more freequent question that I receive lately: 'I see Web 2.0 going on and believe that there could be some value. Where do I start?' cperrien
