Web 2.0

Slowly the so called Internet 2.0 is breaking cover and signs are emerging to what it actually is aiming to become. According to this brief article from Digital Web Magazine:

"these are what we see as the six main themes covering design in the Web 2.0 world:

Writing semantic markup (transition to XML)
Providing Web services (moving away from place)
Remixing content (about when and what, not who or why)
Emergent navigation and relevance (users are in control)
Adding metadata over time (communities building social information)
Shift to programming (separation of structure and style)"

The vision is one where users can "aggregate and remix microcontent in new and useful ways" and that sounds good. The article itself is thin on aesthetics but perhaps this too early to begin that sort of talk.
