Web 2.0 Re-examined:

The Paradigm Shift, Technology Stack and Business Value

Summary

Web 2.0 is the next evolution of the web that has a new usage paradigm as well as a new technology paradigm. The former is characterized by “architecture of participation” and the latter is characterized by “architecture of partition”.

Web 2.0 is more than a consumer phenomenon. There is a consumer as well as an enterprise aspect of web 2.0. Consumer Web 2.0 and Enterprise Web 2.0 intersect at social computing.

Contrary to the common wisdom, Web 2.0 is based on a new technology foundation from Web 1.0. Though still evolving, the web 2.0 technology stack includes an application client container, an internet messaging bus and an enterprise mashup server. This technology stack enables “architecture of partition”, giving developers the capability to decide the appropriate architecture partition according to application requirements for the first time in history.

Beyond being a consumer phenomenon, web 2.0 has a significant impact on business computing by enabling better, faster, richer applications while reducing costs, with tangible and measurable real ROI.

    Was the early optimism borne out by subsequent events? I’ll say! In fact, if anything, the early pronouncements about the fundamental raising of the user-experience bar that the rise of AJAX catalyzed were in hindsight unnecessarily guarded. The “architecture of participation” which MySpace and Flickr exemplified has been complemented swiftly and, if one believes Enterprise Web 2.0 thought leader Coach Wei, with enormous business upside, by an “architecture of partition”—that’s to say, Web 2.0 is actually based on a new technology foundation from Web 1.0, one comprising an application client container, an Internet messaging bus and an enterprise mashup server.
    “Beyond being a consumer phenomenon,” Wei contends, “Web 2.0 has a significant impact on business computing by enabling better, faster, richer applications while reducing costs, with tangible and measurable ROI.”

    I think this is a good thing. It is one of the very few 'consumer-oriened' things that has a future and keeps on developing. The best part is that we take advantage of that… free of charge!

    Was the ages ago optimism borne out by future events? I’ll say! In fact, if anything, the beginning pronouncements close to the fundamental raising of the user-experience bar that the upsweep of AJAX catalyzed were in reminiscence unnecessarily guarded. The “mold of participation” which MySpace and Flickr exemplified has been complemented swiftly and, if one believes drive Web 2.0 thought demand Coach Wei, with enormous free trade upside, by an “forging of partition”—that’s to say, Web 2.0 is in effect based on a new technical skill compact withhold Web 1.0, one comprising an exertion client container, an Internet messaging bus and an conglomerate corporation mashup server.
    “Beyond being a window-shopper phenomenon,” Wei contends, “Web 2.0 has a figural consequences on gadget data retrieval by enabling mastery, faster, richer extensive studys space-time tempering costs, with tangible and measurable ROI.”
