What is web 2.0? How do you harness the intelligence of users? What does “the network is the platform,” really mean? And why are rules on the network different? Why is it better to share information rather than hoard it in the online world?
To find answers to these questions I turned to Tim O’Reilly of O’Reilly media. I caught up with Tim at TiECon 2007 in Santa Clara, where he spoke about Web 2.0 and chaired a panel discussion on Web 2.0 with Navin Ashwin of BitTorrent; Alex Welch of Photobucket and Jaideep Singh of Spock.
Tim is founder and CEO of O’Reilly Media and is an activist for open source, and open standards.
Ajit Jaokar of OpenGarden was kind enough to decipher the interview and post the major points made by TIm during the interview.
The interview first ran in May 2007.
