Blogging to Web 2.0 and Beyond

I have been stuck in the web 1.0 world for some time. I have heard of web 2.0 and have even briefly visited some web 2.0 sites, but I have never taken the time to really embrace web 2.0. You know how it is, there's a million things to do and so little time. However, I have come to the conclusion that I need to make the time to get to know web 2.0. As a result, I am changing the focus of this site to web 2.0. I will still cover Adsense and other topics that interests me, but mainly I will blog about my journey from web 1.0 to web 2.0. For those of you are web 2.0 guru's, feel free to share your expertise.

There really isn't one definition of web 2.0 everyone will agree with. Web 2.0 is more a buzz word than an actual term with a concrete definition. I like to think of web 2.0 as the second generation of the web. In the first generation, publishers published content and visitors read the content. There was little interaction between publishers and visitors and between visitors and other visitors. Web 1.0 was about publishing, not interacting.

In the second generation, the web wasn't just about publishing, but also about sharing, building communities, and developing web services. Yes, I know communities, sharing, and web plugins existed in web 1.0, but not to the same degree as web 2.0. In the second generation of the web, blogs, tagging, and RSS feeds have given the little guy a lot of power and influence.

I don't want to spend too much time on what web 2.0 is and what it isn't. So here's a list of web 2.0 articles you might find useful:
