What is Web 2.0?

THE INTERNET – We’re not sure about the provenance of this video, but we do know one thing – it’s well worth a few minutes of your time to watch. It might resemble something a couple of students might have knocked together as part of their art class, but it is in fact brilliantly done. What’s more, the message is pretty important too.

I’m not sure anyone knows who really coined the term Web 2.0 and as for definitions, well, you’d be hard pushed not to hit one if you threw a stone – there are that many floating about.

In Nokia’s case, it’s all about connecting people. Which makes sense, when you think about it. Ultimately, it doesn’t really matter given that Web 2.0 is, after all, just another buzz word (sorry, term). What matters is the new wave of ability to get hooked up, no matter where you are. Apps that put in you touch with people and places easily, speedily and efficiently. Those, we like. So, if you’ve got a couple of minutes, check out this vid. You’ll need sound as the backing track is a bit good! Enjoy.

Now, what does Web 2.0 mean to you? There are already some pretty slick comments here.
