web 2.0 explained

I found this via Darren Barefoot, a technology writer here in Vancouver: A head-to-head comparison between Web 1.0 and Web 2.0. It's a great list that explains the current revolution happening in the online world

Here's one that Darren added to the already great list that has direct correlations with the company vision of Tell Ten Friends:
Web 1.0 was about advertising, Web 2.0 is about word of mouth.
Not only does that one mean a lot to my company, but it also helps define the line between life before the "bubble," and what's been happening since it popped. I've added my own below, and I encourage you to add yours:
Web 1.0 was about companies, Web 2.0 is user-driven.
Or...Web 1.0 was about them, Web 2.0 is about Us.
Bonus Link:: First, dream up your idea for a new Web 2.0 product or company. Then, enter it into the flickr logo makr. Then start saving your money for the inevitable copyright infringement suit.

Web 1.0 was 'one-way'. Web 2.0 is 'two-way'

Bingo Ryan! Web 1.0 was about how much crap advertisers can shove at us, Web 2.0 is about how much the community can upload and share with each other.
