A well respected authority on Web 2.0

In my attempt to make it easier to understand what Web 2.0 is, I turn to the most well respected authority on the matter and his name is Tim O'Reilly, from O'Reilly Media. His 5 page piece on "Design Patterns & Business Models for the Next Generation Software" explains Web 2.0 applications and business concept in detail.

However, if you put me on a scale of 1 to 10. 10 being the most techie web-orientated (hardware and software) then I would be about a 5.5. On business models using hardware and software for the web, I would be a 9.5.

This article to me, amazing as it was to read, gave me brain freezes over the really hardcore techie parts, that my husband and I leave to our key developers to educate us (programming languages, design patterns and hardware etc.)

I will attempt to explain, and refer to Tim's article a lot on this blog. My intended audience target are people who would be a 2 or 3 out of ten and understand some of my blog so far. Stay tuned.

    The reason you got brain freezes was because the concepts here are so out there that it’s hard for anyone to really understand them.

    🙂 hopefully i can simplify it, feel free to give me ‘reality checks’ 😉 with any of the concepts i talk about, but i suppose i am a ‘social advocate’ because i had a personal need for information and the desire for non-alienation, and this new hype is helping my cause. i think trying to bring products that are too complicated to the general market don’t gain momentum. I am trying to find examples that are doing a great job of the general market embracing their offering, maybe flickr is one? there is also questions out there if myspace will be a stayer…
