Web 2.0 Litmus Paper

It's been a few days since I last posted. [rule #8]

With so much of the industry energy and time going into trying to figure out What-Is-Web 2.0 (a.k.a. "Web 2.0 - wtf?"), the new "Web 2.0 Validator", even though it's only at beta version ~2.7183, could prove to be a real boon.

If you find though that AJAXing your site by adding prototype.js didn't get you slashdotted, here is an actually useful description of Web 2.0 by Tim O'Reilly (also in summarized version by Dare Obasanjo). It's almost 3 months old though - read it quickly before the definition of Web 2.0 changes again :)

A wonderfully short and to the point definition comes actually directly from the Web 2.0 Validator site:

...that 2.0 sites exist and gain value from the aggragation of user data, which thrives when users are trusted to be in charge.
