What is Web 2.0?

Web 2.0 is a term  that was introduced in 2004 to describe a new generation of Web applications which provides dynamic user participation, social interaction and collaboration.  In a nutshell, the next step of the www.

In an article written in 2005, Tim O'Reilly lists on O'reillyNet a sampling of an initial brainstorming of applications that are Web 1.0 vs. Web 2.0 at that time:

Web 1.0 Web 2.0
DoubleClick-->Google AdSense
Britannica Online-->Wikipedia
personal websites-->blogging
evite--> and EVDB
domain name speculation-->search engine optimization
page views-->cost per click
screen scraping-->web services
content management systems-->wikis
directories (taxonomy)-->tagging ("folksonomy")
