Talk About Getting in on the Ground Floor

Is it possible that at this moment all the Web 2.0 apps can be listed on one page?

Frankly I’m not sure what makes these Web 2.0 apps. But here’s my call for ideas: how do I make into a Web 2.0 app? Better yet, how do I do it in time for SXSW Interactive next month? Because, you know, I was there last year, I read this crap, and even I don’t know. And it’s no wonder when you have crap like this to “clarify” the idea.

It’s a classic case of you know it when you see it. Gmail is definitely a Web 2.0 app. Hotmail (even the new “LiveMail”) is not. And if you believe O’Reilly’s definition, it’s simply a matter of taking something someone else did and making it a “platform.” Interestingly, by this metric, it’s impossible to two-point-oh yourself. You can only two-point-oh others.

So, will anyone out there king me?

  1. Well, it’s a little late for SXSW, but I would certainly need to see this comment appearing as it would on your site in real time as I type (ala lifehacker comments). Also, I’d need to be able to tag your posts. And finally my page better as hell not post back to the server to send it.
