So what's my
definition of Web 2.0? Well I prefer the succinct "The Web as
Platform", because I can then fill in the blanks depending on who I'm
talking to. For corporate people, the Web is a platform for business. For
marketers, the Web is a platform for communications. For journalists, the Web
is a platform for new media. For geeks, the Web is a platform for software
development. And so on.
The above picture shows the time bar of Web 2.0 and the
appearance of all buzz words which are assigned to web 2.0. Also with the added
dependencies between the buzz words.

It's very much a work in progress, but shows the many ideas that radiate out
from the Web 2.0 core.
