The term "Web 2.0" is justly derided for its imprecision. In this talk Dave Marvit of Fujitsu labs will present a different perspective on the continuum from simple data collections to knowledge systems. With many examples he will try to elucidate the underlying principles that will help us create more useful and much smarter Web services.
