Google Adding Web 2.0 Features

by Jon Davis 25. November 2008 16:18

A week or so ago, Google snuck in interesting new features to the search results. You can now comment on any hit, as well as manually give hits boost rankings or removing them.

Who'da thunk, that people could contribute to the accuracy of Google's search hits?! Honestly, how long did it take for this idea to come about, it's so simple and yet where has it been all this time?! :)



The Best Summarization of Web 2.0 Ever

by Jon Davis 24. February 2008 23:35

If you were ever confused about what "web 2.0" really means, forget about everything you've picked up on regarding:

  • technologies (mashups, syndication)
  • web design ("the web 2.0 look")
  • MySpace / facebook
  • RSS / Atom

.. and just watch this video, which in less than 5 minutes of speechless video summarizes where we were in web 1.0, where we are now, and what our objectives are going forward. Very well done, very beautiful. Also a bit dated. Web 2.0 as a topic of discussion is behind us, I suppose .. call it nostalgia. :)

About the author

Software in all forms is also his sole hobby, whether playing PC games or tinkering with programming them. "I was playing Defender on the Commodore 64," he reminisces, "when I decided at the age of 12 or so that I want to be a computer programmer when I grow up."

Jon was previously employed as a senior .NET developer at a very well-known Internet services company whom you're more likely than not to have directly done business with. However, this blog and all of jondavis.net have no affiliation with, and are not representative of, his former employer in any way.
