As I mentioned in one of my early posts, I am pretty much a "have-not" when it comes to blogging. I must admit however that given the positive feedback and excitement we have seen this past week as we launched Blogtalkradio, our status in the blogging community is rising just a tad.
So the question I pose this morning, "Is Blogtalkradio a Web 2.0 company". So where else but wikipedia could we find a definition. So here is the link.
For those of you that do not want to read 8 pages of information related to the definition of Web 2.0, i took the liberty to extract one paragraph as follows:
While the definition of a Web 2.0 application is still hotly debated, it is generally accepted that a Web 2.0 website would exhibit some basic characteristics. These include:
The site should not act as a walled garden - it should be easy to get data in and out of the system.
Users usually own their data on the site and can modify it at their convenience.
Mainly web-based - most successful Web 2.0 applications can be used almost entirely through a web browser: this is commonly referred to by the phrase "network as platform".
Data returns should be dynamic, not static, changing depending on variables associated with the user's query (e.g. keywords, location).
An architecture of participation that allows users to add value to the application as they use it.
Some social networking aspects.
As I read through this definition, it became clear to me that Blogtalkradio is in fact a Web 2.0 company. We meet all of these criteria and more. I encourage you to check out Blogtalkradio and see for yourself. All of our content is user generated, the data can be modified at any time, there are significant social networking aspects, and our data is easy to get and out of the platform. So what if we are a Web 2.0. company? Actually I dont know the answer to this question.
