Web 2.0: Hope or Hype?
26 September 2007
“Web 1.0 was all about connecting people. It was an interactive space, and I think Web 2.0 is of course a piece of jargon, nobody even knows what it means. If Web 2.0 for you is blogs and wikis, then that is people to people. But that was what the Web was supposed to be all along. And in fact, you know, this \'Web 2.0,\' it means using the standards which have been produced by all these people working on Web 1.0."

Within two and a half hours, site visitors had corrected all the errors.
