The term Web 2.0 has been overused to the point of barely having any meaning. Some people use the term to refer to the way in which the web is changing into a more personal and interactive environment where anyone with access can participate without having to be a computer geek. Other people use the term to refer to the individual technologies that are bringing these changes about. I have no idea what it actually means.

While I am not a big fan of the actual term Web 2.0, I am very excited about the trend of providing people with easy access to cool technology and letting them run wild with it. The best explanation of Web 2.0 I’ve seen yet is this video that I stumbled across on youtube today and watched 4 times in a row. I think non-geeky types might enjoy watching it too.
