The Demise of Web 2.0

The term Web 2.0 has been around for about a decade, but we are finally seeing its disuse. No, the Web itself isn’t going away: but the notion that an interactive layer of applications, protocols, programming languages and tools has become subsumed into a new kind of Web: one where everything is a service, where mobile browsing is more important and where social networking has helped discover and promote new content. As a result, we don’t really need the term anyone, because it is so much of what the Web has become. Think of this as going beyond the 2.0 label of the Web: now we have a richer world of interactions that is just the beginning of how we use that tired old port 80.
