Web 2.0 Magazine on Ulitzer Web 2.0 may not have a clear-cut definition but irrespective of which way you look at it (there are three different ways of looking at Web 2.0), it is about the behavior of complex system, it is about collective intelligence and it is about emergence. The fundamental principles governing such systems are that the whole is much more than the sum of its parts – the behavior of the system cannot be derived or understood by analyzing individual elements.

That was even before the web browser days, which didn’t come out till 1993-94. Mosaic browser was first released in 1993. And I remember the excitement we had at work when we installed an early version of Netscape browser in 1994.Partial map of internet 2005,via Wikipedia There was internet of course even before the browser. In addition to the worldwide...

Thus, I will not attempt to add to the body of knowledge in terms of basic Web 2.0 concepts themselves. I would rather prefer to build on some of the... (more)
