O’Reilly’s Web 2.0 Principles & Best Practices report
John Musser (of Programmable Web) in association with O’Reilly Radar and Tim O’Reilly has written a 100 page report on Web 2.0 principles & best Practices. The report claims to explain why Web 2.0 matters and how you can make the most of it.
In 2004, we realized that the Web was on the cusp of a new era, one that would finally let loose the power of network effects, setting off a surge of innovation and opportunity. When O’Reilly’s Dale Dougherty came up with the term “Web 2.0” during a brainstorming session, we knew we had the name our conference. What we didn’t know was that the industry would embrace the Web 2.0 meme and that it would come to represent the new Web.
This report is for those who are ready to respond to that shift. It digs beneath the hype and buzzwords, and teaches the underlying rules of Web 2.0—what they are, how successful Web 2.0 companies are applying them, and how to apply them to your own business. It’s a practical resource that provides essential tools for competing and thriving in today’s emerging business world. I hope it inspires you to embrace the Web 2.0 opportunity.
