Fun poll

What's nice about this poll is that you get to add as many favorites as you like.

So go for it.

That was me who added Wikipedia.

Tim O'Reilly assigned Wikipedia to the highest level of "2.0-ness".
Level 3: The application could ONLY exist on the net, and draws its essential power from the network and the connections it makes possible between people or applications. These are applications that harness network effects to get better the more people use them. EBay, craigslist, Wikipedia, del.icio.us, Skype, (and yes, Dodgeball) meet this test. They are fundamentally driven by shared online activity.

Here's the source for that quote. Found via Wikipedia. ;)

LJ certainly meets O'Reilly's criteria for Level 3.

Excellent definition, Manfred.

It certainly seems like lj would meet these standards. Look at how it's morphed and grown over the years. Thank you for the O'Reilly's quote source.

Since part of what I'm want to do is give a clearer picture of what 2.0 is, I may post this link and attribute you as my own source.

If you look at my vodpod ... or the tag "video" you'll see a great video from YouTube about Web 2.0.

O'Reilly is great. I've been carrying around his CSS book for a week or so waiting to absorb it. It's an old version I bought several years ago. A lot has happened in the past few years. Long story. Anyway, I hope I'm able to gleam the essence of CSS coding.

Some articles on Slashdot I found apropos O'Reilly, Web 2.0, and Wikipedia...

Is there a wordpress plug-in you're using for these polls? Nice ...

Cool. Glad you like it.

Of course, it's less than what I realized it was ... and wish it could offer more. Maybe at some point I'll know enough to actually feel comfortable tweaking with code.

Wish it had multiple choice boxes and wish that you could add more than one answer. At least people can add an answer! That's what I've been looking for!!

Grrrrr... It would only let me add ONE thing. SO besides LJ which was the one it let me do, I also like Vox.
Question... what about music sites such as last.fm where you give input about what kinds of music you like and it builds a "radio station" based on that?
Would that be considered web 2.0??
May. 13th, 2007 04:49 am (UTC)
Yeah, grrr. At first, I assumed (ugh) that a person could add more than one option, but that ain't the case. A bummer ...

... However, I'm more grateful that I found this WP plug-in. It's the only survey I've found that will allow voters to add another option.

last.fm is considered 2.0.
vox would be a good addition.

A ton of people have looked at this post, but not many have voted (or added an additional choice). I wish more people would just vote. It would be great to have a huge list.

Tonight i'm posting a link a site that lists a ton of web 2.0 software. I should have posted it sooner. It's not comprehensive, but it's very good. You may have been there.

You adding lj is great. It shows the wide spance of what web 2.0 can do and the opportunities.
