Web 2.0 in a Nutshell

Although the post from Sean McClowry is about a lofty framework for Sustainability 2.0 it incorporates very concise and accurate synopses of Web 2.0 and Enterprise 2.0:

What is Web 2.0?

It’s and attitude, not only a technology

  • Share, Participate, Be transparent, Honest voice

It’s about people

  • Communities of trust

The web as a platform

  • Capacity to use the web as an Operating System
  • A ‘writeable web’


What is Enterprise 2.0?

A company applying Web 2.0 technology/techniques to deliver:

  • New Products/New Services
  • Increased Quality
  • Better us of ‘people talent’

Enabling corporate agility

  • Flexible and Anticipative Solutions
  • Works with SOA to focus on reuse and efficiency

Apart from SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) these are good definitions to use for the non-technical members of your organisation.
