RSS is the Fuel that Web 2.0 is made of
Or so says Michael Arrington of TechCrunch:
Michael Arrington, author of the Web 2.0 blog TechCrunch, sees it as the “inevitable evolution of the web from a read-mostly medium to a read-write, or two-way medium”.
For him, the key thing about technologies like Ajax and Ruby on Rails, both widely used to build Web 2.0 services, is that they let developers create dynamic, interactive content so that “text is no longer necessarily embedded in a web page, it can be syndicated through RSS”.
Like the good Doc Searls said web 2.0 “sounds way too much like a product upgrade, when in fact what is happening is more fundamental and much larger than a feature-enhancement.”
I don’t care much for that decription (web 2.0) either. It sounds too much like something Bill Gates would like to patent.
