Web2.0 Observations and Examples

Some introductory observations:
  • Create / edit / share -- it's social
  • Word processing, spread sheets, presentations
  • Blogging and Web Design
  • Audio, video, images
  • Perpetual beta (so get used to it)
  • Gets better and better as time goes on and more people use it
  • Applications are constantly updated -- no downloads or updates to run
  • It's not proprietary (like Microsoft), so views perfect on every platform (Mac, PC, Linux)
  • Industry standard Backbone (for programmers): xHTML, CSS, W3C, XML, flash, AJAX
