Over the past few weeks, I have written a lot about Web 2.0 on boagworld.com. However, most of what I have written consists of questions rather than answers. In this episode of the boagworld podcast, Marcus Lillington and I try to take the characteristics of Web 2.0 and apply them to real world websites.

One of my greatest concerns with Web 2.0 is that it seems to have been adopted by only a handful of largely technical consumer websites. Few of these sites seem to have a traditional business plan and so bare little resemblance to the average organisation’s website. In this podcast, we look at what Web 2.0 actually is and how those underlying characteristics apply to the mainstream websites we all work with on a daily basis.

A lot of this podcast is based on Andy Budd’s presentation at the d.construct Web 2.0 conference here in the UK. Andy did an excellent job at defining Web 2.0 and explaining why perhaps the buzzword does have its place. What we do in this podcast is look at what can be learnt from this new generation of websites and moved across into the mainstream.
