Welcome to the second part of this 3-part article. Much has happened since I
wrote the first part: for instance, I am now a member of the Web 2.0
Workgroup and I have also been selected to speak at SYS-CON's SOA Web
Services Conference & Expo 2006 in New York City in June.
Many thanks for all your feedback to the first article. I would also like to
introduce Tony Fish (who is my co-author for OpenGardens ). The authors of
this article and the third article which will follow (about the impact of
Web 2.0 on digital convergence) are Ajit and Tony jointly.
In this article, we will discuss three things:The definition of Mobile Web
2.0"I am not a number – I am a tag!"A blueprint for a Mobile Web 2.0
Mobile Web 2.0 Defined
Using the foundation of Tim O Reilly’s Seven Principles for Web 2.0, we
define Mobile Web 2.0 as your experience of preferred services o... (more)
Following my article about "Mobile Web 2.0," I wanted to find a
blueprint/case study of a Mobile Web 2.0 service.
This follow-up article is a bit of a gedankenexperiment – but I have
drawn on the excellent work being done by Dr Marc Davis and his team at the
Garage cinema research at the University of California (Berkeley).
The service I am considering here is a ‘mobile’ version of a
combination of del.icio.us and flickr
As you probably know, both del.icio.us and flickr are based on tags. However,
note that in a mobile context, a ‘tag’ would have a d... (more)
Since I have an interest in Mobile Web 2.0 (and by extension with Web 2.0 in
general), I get some interesting reactions from people. Everyone has a view
on Web 2.0 - it's almost getting to the stage that we can't discuss religion,
politics AND Web 2.0! Anyway, here are two recent incidents...p>
A person who I met a few weeks ago insisted that web 2.0 is
‘community’. My point was – yes – it has some
community features – but no it’s not ONLY about community. See my
blog and Tim o Reilly’s original seven points and Dion
Hinchcliffe’s p... (more)
This is a series of three articles – the first (this one) outlining the
significance of Web 2.0 technologies, the second article discussing the
impact of Web 2.0 technologies on mobility and the final article on the
impact of Web 2.0 technologies on digital convergence.
If you are already familiar with Web 2.0, my goal, in a nutshell (no pun
intended!) is to extend Tim O Reilly’s seven principles to mobility and
Thus, I will not attempt to add to the body of knowledge in terms of basic
Web 2.0 concepts themselves. I would rather prefer to build on some of the... (more)
In this article, which focuses on the impact of Ajax on mobile application
development only (i.e. he does not discuss Ajax in general), SOA Web Services
Edge speaker Ajit Jaokar contends that - since his e-mail, calendar and other
applications are on the web, and he can store all my documents on the web,
all he needs is a browser. "One client to rule them all! Thus, today I would
use a ‘browser-only PC’," he adds.
Earlier this year, I published an article called AJAX for Mobile Devices Will
Be the Hallmark of "Mobile Web 2.0" in 2006.
It created quite a stir .. and I a... (more)
