After reading the 3 articles, I have a much better idea about what exactly is meant by the term “Web 2.0” I thought that the best examples were about how open the internet has become. This openness allows for people to tell stories in all new ways and communications are much faster. With the emergence of commenting on posts, replying to a twitter feed, or posting a video response to a youtube video for example, people are much more open and ready to share their feelings. The example of e-mail could also be used, where many new technologies are possibly leading to the eventual death of the standard classic e-mail. With hundreds, if not thousands of new forms of communication, simpler and faster methods seem much more practical in an evolving era. I imagine that as the years pass, the modern technologies will also become almost obsolete as newer technologies prove better in an ever improving technological era.
