Web 2.0 Definition

Although I know or think I know what Web 2.0 is all about. Giving a clear and concise definition can be difficult. I always described it as a ethos of creation and active participation, but a longer more detailed definition comes from the original brainstorming session where the phrase Web 2.0 was formed.

Web 2.0 applications and services have at least several of the following elements common:

- fresh, useful data is the core
- the ability for other parties to manipulate that data
- "living" applications that can be easily adapted
- harnessing the collective experience
- the web as a platform, independent of user platform
- primary focus of participation, rather than publishing
- trusting of users to provide reliable content
