Web 2.0 and Me

It’s late and I just finished up programming for about 4 hours straight. I’ve been doing a lot of research on Web 2.0. The term has been out there for awhile now, but it’s really just starting to sink in for me on what exactly it means for the internet. This chart really helped me grasp it better:

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

I pulled this chart from O’Reilly.com. I’ve been using content management systems for quite awhile now and I have seen the trend of a CMS solution developing into a wiki. After fully grasping the web 2.0 concept I really began to think of new ideas. I’ve decided to redevelop one of my sites using this concept. The site is JustIndiana.com. The site was originally developed to be an Indiana only search engine. Well that didn’t pan out so well so I’m moving on! I’ll give more details in future postings, but be on the lookout for JustIndiana 2.0!
