Web 2.0: Make it work for U !!

WEB 2.0 IS NO LONGER LINKING INFORMATION….IT’S LINKING PEOPLE…. …It’s about People Sharing, Trading and Collaborating!!!

Probably one of my greatest dilemas in the Technology space would be to understand how best to defined the term ‘web 2.0’..should i call it a new age business revolution, a complicated web of IT jargons or the next generation of web development and design..or may be all of the 3. Call it by any of the 3 names, Web 2.0 is changing our lives in ways we cannot comprehend or simply put understand 🙂 Can you imagine a day without Google, Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, Blogs and Wikis and you begin to unfold the story behind the increasing success of Web 2.0.  A story about sharing and collaboration on a scale never seen before. Lev Grossnan in the TIME magazine ‘Person of the Year: YOU’ refered to the Web 2.0 as revolution that was about the cosmic compendium of knowledge Wikipedia and the million-channel people’s network YouTube and the online metropolis MySpace. I agree with him in terming it as a knowledge sharing collaborative technology that was all about about the many wresting power from the few and helping one another for nothing like in case of Twitter, Blogs and the various wikis available on the net. Simply put it is about how Web 2.0 will not only change the world, but also change the way the world changes.

For additional information on how you can make Web 2.0 work for you and your company, the following articles would be handy.
