Web 2.0

Web 2.0 – Whats it all about?

By January 21, 2008 2 Comments

Two posts on Web 2.0 in as many hours – we are on writing the book introduction and thus trawling around for information.

Oscar Retterer, Director of Instructional & Emerging Technologies at Franklin & Marshall College has uploaded to YouTube his thoughts on what Web 2.0 is all about:

Web 2.0 is about social input, information upload and interaction – Web 3.0 is somewhere we don’t want to go to quite yet but combine Web 2.0 with ‘The Cloud’ and we think your almost there..

More Web 2.0 type posts or thoughts are quite possible over the coming hours/days…. we should also have an updated Crysis and ‘Importing Architecture’ movie which is looking promising.


Andy is Professor of Digital Urban Systems at the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis at University College London.

    I’m going to have to unsubscribe if you start blathering on about Web 2.0 like half a billion other blogs out there.

    The only thing that makes you different is talking about mapping reality, and that’s why you’re on my list. Change that, and you’re gone.

    Comment noted 🙂 Mapping reality is back today with two good posts – one an update on Crysis and secondly Land eXplorer…

    So hold on to us for a while yet 🙂
