Trends on the Web 2006 - Web 2.0


According to Tim O'Reilly Web 2.0 is not yet clearly defined but he listed some transitions from Web 1.0 to Web 2.0, as follows:

Web 1.0 --> Web 2.0
DoubleClick --> Google AdSense
Ofoto --> Flickr
Akamai --> BitTorrent
mp3.com --> Napster
Britannica Online --> Wikipedia
personal websites --> blogging
evite --> upcoming.org and EVDB
domain name speculation --> search engine optimization
page views --> cost per click
screen scraping --> web services
publishing --> participation
content management systems --> wikis
directories (taxonomy) --> tagging ("folksonomy")
stickiness --> syndication


BitTorrent thus demonstrates a key Web 2.0 principle: the service automatically gets better the more people use it.

Wikipedia is already in the top 100 websites, and many think it will be in the top ten before long.

There are more than 100,000 open source software projects listed on SourceForge.net.

One of the most highly touted features of the Web 2.0 era is the rise of blogging.
