A Web 2.0 directory

Web 2.0 is the buzz. They are the “new generation” of websites that provide new ways of collaborating online (well known Web 2.0 examples are Wikis, and social networking websites like MySpace, FaceBook, Twitter and on, and on, and on)….

There are some very serious Web 2.0 sites around – and the not so serious..

Kerpoof! – Fun for all ages (but mainly for kids!)

Magmypic – ever wanted to be on the cover of The Rolling Stone? Well here you can!

Gizmoz – have some fun and get animated!

The Go2Web directory is in itself a great Web 2.0 example – it lists a great many Web 2.0 sites – contained in an innovative interface. Go and have a play!

Web 2.0

Web 2.0 is one of the many changes we have seen in recent years. Web 2.0, a phrase coined by O’Reilly Media in 2004, refers to…

a perceived second-generation of Web-based services—such as social networking sites, wikis, communication tools, and folksonomies—that emphasize online collaboration and sharing among users. …(ref: wikipedia).

The development of Web 2.0 applications across the web is staggering. Just a quick glance at the plethora of apps at a directory site like Go2Web20 is mind boggling! While many seem to offer a different way of doing the same thing – many are an indication of the way in which we use the web is changing. As we build The Channel Telegraph we will try and highlight the good, bad and ugly of those Web 2.0 apps that seem to be popping into hyperspace every minute of the day…somewhere in the world.
