What is 2.0 and what does it mean exactly? Nowadays everywhere you look you see 2.0. Everyone puts 2.0. next to anything at the moment. It all sounds nice and trendy but does anybody really know what it is?

2.0 is power to the people!
A little bit of 2.0 history
The popular use of the phrase 2.0 all started with Web 2.0 in 2004. At that time Tim O’Reilly of O’Reilly Media held a Web 2.0 conference during which the new way of using the World Wide Web was discussed. One of his main arguments at the time was that the web should be more user focused. The Web should be a platform for users.
