    I suggest you read up on what is ACTUALLY meant by Web 2.0 before voicing opinions about it.

      Reads ups on its, he says.

      "Web 2.0" refers to a perceived second generation of web development and design, that facilitates communication, secure information sharing, interoperability, and collaboration on the World Wide Web.

      (Emphasis on the subjective mine.)

      Design, no; communication, half-way; secure info exchange, no; interoperability, no/barely; collaboration, a bit.

      Web 2.0, lacking a spec or formal definition, is just whatever anyone sees as different online pre-2005-ish and post. PerlMonks, to me, doesn't even remotely qualify.

      Which is not a critique of the site at all; just the proposed taxonomy. ELISHEVA, our blossoming culture maven, had a lot of thoughtful things to say keeping with the grain of the OP, though, which was nice to read and made the thread.

        It also says:

        Web 2.0 websites typically include some of the following features/techniques. Andrew McAfee used the acronym SLATES to refer to them:

        • Search
          The ease of finding information through keyword search.

        • Links
          Ad-hoc guides to other relevant information.

        • Authoring
          The ability to create constantly updating content over a platform that is shifted from being the creation of a few to being constantly updated, interlinked work. In wikis, the content is iterative in the sense that users undo and redo each other's work. In blogs, content is cumulative in that posts and comments of individuals are accumulated over time.

        • Tags
          Categorization of content by creating tags: simple, one-word user-determined descriptions to facilitate searching and avoid rigid, pre-made categories.

        • Extensions
          Powerful algorithms that leverage the Web as an application platform as well as a document server.

        • Signals
          The use of RSS technology to rapidly notify users of content changes.

        Other than the extensions, PM has all of the above, and has done for a long time.
