Web 2.0.

I recently discovered that I have not embraced Web 2.0 as much as I should. This is not to say that I don't use it. After all, I am writing an entry for my blog about it. In the past, I read a lot more than I wrote while browsing the web; I have visited countless sites reading what they have to offer without leaving a comment for the creator. This is a Web 1.0 trait which I find very hard to shake. Web 2.0 is about collaboration or, to put it plainly, leaving people comments. Some might argue that Web 2.0 is also about social networking which again requires that you actually leave people comments on their MySpace or Facebook pages when they leave comments on yours. In order to do this, you have to remember that blog pots (like this one), or whatever Web 2.0 content you happen to be reading, are not newspaper articles and do allow room for comment at the bottom.
