The Web 2.0 seems to be the evolution of The Internet as we knew it, when people thought the web was about to die, and that the dot com was going to bust and everything was going to go under, instead things boomed for the Web, and the internet as a whole became even more popular then it was. In came the ease of convience, in came new programs that allowed to do new things, such as music downloaders, video managers, things people found very attractive that worked over the web allowing people to finally share files over a larger network. Web 2.0 helped introduce people to things such as Ebay and amazon, and helped the world figure out how to work an online marketplace, which hadn’t existed before. Google, Amazon, Yahoo, where would they be if we were still stuck in Web 1.0? That is some food for thought well worth pondering on. Web 2.0 has always been easier to use, including the addition of social networking, flickr, facebook, all that jazz, without it where would our world be right now? So many people have benefited from the new type of web that the differences between 1.0 and 2.0 are almost astounding. I’d like anyone who reads this to think back for a moment to before GoogleMaps existed and remember that people use to use mapquest far more often then they do now. The Web 2.0 and GoogleMaps did not destroy mapquest however, but merely gave users a new place to find better maps. I’d also like to point out that if we were still in Web 1.0 chances are, communications between others would still be harsh, at best.
