    Web 2.0: For the User, By the User - This Web 2.0...

    (Page 3 of 7 )

    This Web 2.0 business is a touchy subject for some malcontents. While some try to identify a Web 3.0 (catchphrase overkill?), others feel that a key characteristic of the Web 2.0 paradigm, the democratization of the Internet space, is what's bound to fail us.

    While being one of Web 2.0's darlings because of its open-source success, the online encyclopedia Wikipedia.org also receives criticism for the very same reasons. It's the handiest of resources and has skyrocketed in popularity. What's more, users repeatedly return to the site once they've used it, an impressive quality. It's in the top 25 most heavily trafficked sites--not bad at all for a site that doesn't advertise. Kind of like another free website whose popularity is not reflected in visible advertising: Google.

    Wikipedia's services are free. Its content is also wholly submitted by web-users. However, in being constructed by amateurs, Wikipedia is thus susceptible to the foibles of amateur contribution. Recently Wikipedia falsely identified a Tennessean as being linked to both of the Kennedy assassinations, a joke perpetrated by a co-worker. The open-ended format leaves such shenanigans possible.
