My Thoughts & Views

Archive for the ‘Web 2.0’ Category

It’s really exciting to see the developments that lead to current situations. The way we communicate and collaborate,do business and every thing else has been revolutionized by the Internet.

Networking has changed our world…
Email, the web, peer-to-peer networks, blogging …
State of the art is changing fast…
Just in the last 10 years
Maturation of web 1.0 (NCSA Mosaic, Netscape, IE, firefox)
Internet searching (Google) and online Ads Market
Deployment / popularization of VoIP
Wireless LANs (and NATs)
Peer-to-peer systems and multimedia
From illegal music (Napster/Kazaa) to legal (iTunes) to illegal movies (BitTorrent) and Video Sharing
Cheap web servers
Social Networking
Wikis …
And much more is coming…

This is a slightly revised and cleaned up version of the video that was featured on YouTube in February 2007.

I considered releasing it as an “eternal beta” in true Web 2.0 style, but decided to let it stand as is and start working on future projects. Many of my future videos will address the last 30 seconds of this video (the “rethink …” part).

Thank you all for the helpful comments on the earlier draft. It has been a great experience to connect with so many people interested in
similar issues.

Once again, there are higher quality versions available for download:

I received many more positive comments than negative about the song choice (great work Deus!), but if you are one of those who does not like the song just download the video and change the audio track to your liking.

The video was created by me (Michael Wesch), working alone from my house in St. George, Kansas. I used CamStudio for the screen captures and Sony Vegas for the panning/cropping/zooming animations. Someday I might make a video tutorial for those who are interested.

Whether you like the terminology or not, things are changing on the Internet, which is increasingly embedded in people’s lives. People have access to vast amount of information at their fingertips, they have access to all the beautiful applications such as You Tube, Slide Share,Blogs to name a few of the long lists.

Does this matter to your business? It’s not hard to see how changes in the online environment will affect your business sooner or later.

For people who need an introduction to Web 2.0, here are a few links to get you started:
* Tim O’Reilly’s definition
* the conference
* trademark controversy
* Troy Angrignon‘s ChangeThis manifesto combines a solid background on Web 2.0 with applications for business.
* and of course Wikipedia for the Beginners.

We seem to have a number of discussions about terminology going on—about Web 2.0, RSS versus feeds, social media,social networking the debates only prove that people are interested in these topics, and that the whole Internet environment isn’t mature yet. Vigorous discussion of terminology is just part of the growth process.

Plethora of options to grow in Web 2.0 Cyber Space

I am really excited & fascinated about the happenings in the latest Web 2.0 Cyber Space. There are social networking sites(Orkut, Face Book, Hi5, Mingle Box etc..),Video sharing sites( You Tube, Google Video etc), Presentation slide shows( etc), Social Book Marking sites( etc), Blogs- Push Button Publishing(, etc) so many innovative ideas and products which inspires people to go ahead and work on their own innovative products.. like, SMS Reach Out,,,, etc.

Lets see what other innovative products come along the way.

The days of building a “website” are over. We are full-fledged application designers, the web is merely our front-end. The increasing complexity of application development is causing our various disciplines to converge, with designers dabbling in front-end code and developers working through interaction paradigms. Though the scope of our work and particular roles continues to increase, excellent communication remains the key to success. Tom Watson will discuss principles that will help bridge this gap so you can create simple and beautiful web applications.
