On Web 1.0 and 2.0 and power sharing...

Quote for the Day: Wednesday, July 11th, 2007

I was in the pub the other evening, trying to explain the difference between Web 1.0 ["Dotcom"] vs Web 2.0 ["Blogs & Social Media"] to a web neophyte friend of mine.

The short answer: "Dotcom was about 'taking'. Web 2.0 is about 'giving'...Suddenly for the first time in history, the world's most powerful form of media is about giving, not taking. The implications are vast.

Giving vs. Taking. Exactly.

so would you say we've come full circle? The very first forms of inter networking were bulletin board services that posted answeres/insights/information about individuals/products/services in a type of loose gathering of a community. I've always wondered what makes web 2 point ohhhh so sexy to people when it's what the internet was always intended to be.

Um, no. I think newsgroups and listservs played a critical part in facilitating discussions on the Net but the sharing of content in a web 2.0 world is enabled by technologies which allow us to be selective about the types of stuff we mash-up and the applications that use to filter, bookmark and redistributed "shared" content which is truly multimedia...look here:

Well, the original answer was in response to a neophyte's question so I guess that's why it resonated with me.
