What is Web 2.0?

Anyone in the College Park area next Tuesday (March 27) may want to stop by the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (located in McKeldin library) to catch Byron Hawk's (GMU) talk on “Identifying Web 2.0: Remixing Institutional Identities:”
"... systems such as Zotero (GMU) and Digital Notebook (Georgetown) are being developed to take advantage of Web 2.0 capabilities such as citing, tagging, and cross referencing content across systems, the issue of identity is still in flux. ... newer CMS systems are centered on the production of a university or scholarly identity. This paper will examine the possibility of accepting the personal and subcultural identities that will inevitably emerge with the development of Web 2.0 research tools."
I'm not sure what he means, but it sounds interesting.
