Web 2.0 & The Guru Of The Participation Age

We recently covered the Web 2.O Meme Map published by Tim O'Reilly. Steven Levy has an excellent profile of Tim. He identifies Tim O’Reilly’s recipe for success as laying in Harnessing collective intelligence. Tim has come out with a detailed article titled Design Patterns and Business Models for the Next Generation of Software, an exhaustive notes on the web2.0 evolution and future direction. Tim concluded that Web 2.0 shall be characterised as:

- Services, not packaged software, with cost-effective scalability
- Control over unique, hard-to-recreate data sources that get richer as more people use them
- Trusting users as co-developers
- Harnessing collective intelligence
- Leveraging the long tail through customer self-service
- Software above the level of a single device
- Lightweight user interfaces, development models, AND business models
The key themes may be summarized as being able to expose more and more of web services, harnessing collective intelligence & leverage the long tail. Wired also has a list of what’s on Tim’s Radar:
- Real & Virtual World Blurs
- Ruby On Rails
- Geography Based Mash-ups
- VoIP Disruption
