Web 2.0 – a definition

There have been numerous definitions and interpretations of what Web 2.0 is, but I quite liked the description of it as a ‘participatory theatre’, where the principles and technologies of Web 2.0 evolve the user experience from hunting and gathering to creation and social connections.It is also said that:

Web 2.0 can be characterised as nothing more than a massive social experiment, and one that harnesses the stupidity of crowds as well as its wisdom.

Just like real life then!
