Are you ready for Web 2.0?

Many exciting new web sites and services are associated with the concept of "Web 2.0." But what does "Web 2.0" really mean?

Current use of the term is focused on the concepts of the web as a read/write platform, using APIs to create new services, user-generated content, and the concepts of reuse and remixing.

As of July, 2005, Wikipedia defines Web 2.0 as "a term often applied to a perceived ongoing transition of the World Wide Web from a collection of websites to a full-fledged computing platform serving web applications to end users."

So, what is Web 2.0? When did we transition from Web 1.0? What are the implications of Web 2.0 for users, content creators, and designers? We have assembled a panel of experts who will explore this issue. Some of the themes we will discuss are:

* Syndication of content.

* -The web as a platform.

* -Remixing the web.

* -User generated content and tags.

* -Distributed content and navigation.

* -What all of this means for the individual.
