We will here a lot about this this week: What is Web 2.0?
Eric Norlan summarizes it this way.
“Web 2.0” is the idea that the web is now the platform. In the development of computing we always think in “platforms”
You’ll find is a bunch of companies that are building applications (and sub-platforms) on the Web 2.0 meme — and they *all* are either touching digital identity or going to need digital identity.
I’m pleased to report that a truly significant thing is occurring — the identity architects in the enterprise are beginning to mingle with the identity folks out in end-user land.
I believe the technology stars are beginning to align; that the marketplace is beginning (beginning, I say) to catch up with the conversation; that maybe – just maybe…
This is great news. Sounds like we should have a BOF or some other identity gang/workshop related gathering. I went to look for the listing of BOFs and or the event wiki – couldn’t find it. I wonder what kind of Web 2.0 event is this with no wiki? Hopefully all will become clear on Wednesday :).
