This may have been linked the post tpl's linked to, but it seems apropos to this as well.

I've always wondered what Web 2.0 was ... so it's just another business scam, huh?

Sorry, I was using Goopy as a general adjective, but I had no idea that it was also a pre-reserved proper noun.

As a mac shareware programmer, I really like this "Web 2.0" deal.

With firefox & Apple's WebKit, making cross-platform (to linux and Windows) apps is pretty easy now, and JavaScript rocks as a lightweight programming language, much more expressive and convenient than C, C++, Java or Objective-C (haven't used C# yet but it's mostly like Java I guess).

CSS is pretty awesome for creating L&F, and the retained-mode DOM is a very nice foundation for creating a UI.

My apps run reasonably well on my 800Mhz PBG4, and simply fly on my 2-year-old 2.6Ghz P4.

According to the validator, Metafilter.com (score: 2/11) beats BaseCampHQ.com (score: 1/11). So far, I've been unable to find a site which scores higher (and most web apps score 0).

Clearly, Web 2.0 is MetaFilter.

Me too.

In the meantime, use social scripting.

Man...I'm shocked at all these apparently smart, skilled people who don't know how to define web 2.0. It's not rocket science, geez. Clearly people need degrees in the humanities to understand it.
