What the $#@! Is Web 2.0?

This is a pretty straight forward explanation of what's different about Web 2.0, with some good examples.
User-edited Wikipedia (Web 2.0) has gained ground, while Encarta (Web 1.0) is losing out.

The Geocities model (Web 1.0) relied on “metaphors of place” while MySpace (Web 2.0) “anchors presence through metaphors of a person.”

Web 2.0—the social web—is about people.
