Ok, smart people. I need your help. I'm gathering all my samples and bookmarks for a brown bag lunch chat re: what makes a Web site 2.0?
First, in deference, I must say, I do get the 'real' definition. At least as far as you can 'get' a highly contested definition of a very smooshy topic.
But, still, I want to take to farther. To play with how the technologies and ideas impact what consumers demand from sites. So, here are my 9 principles. Each with an example of a Web 1.0 counterpart, a Web 2.0 in the raw and a Web 2.0 by a retail brand.
Take a look. Question me. Fight me. I'm intrigued enough to get this right.
