Hi Forum!

What is the deal with Web 2.0?

Is it all hype?

Depends who's defining the term ;)

So it is some undefined, unofficial, term (for lack of a better term)?

There's been many suggestions, the problem is that it sounds like a protocol or standard, but is more of a generic term for the next generation of websites. I think what most people associate with web2.0 is the use of user generated content and some ajax.
