This teaser for a conference presentation, Web 2.0: The Power Behind the Hype, is worth a look for its insights into the variety of technologies being touted as part of Web 2.0:
Web 2.0 isn’t a ‘thing’, but a collection of approaches, which are all converging on the development world at a rapid pace. These approaches, including APIs, RSS, Folksonomies, and Social Networking, suddenly give application developers a new way to approach hard problems with surprisingly effective results.
The teaser is interesting. The conference itself would need to be good to justify the registration cost (posted at the bottom of the piece). Web 2.0, or whatever we call it, is set to change the way we work with technology over the next few years.
