Web 2.0

I’ve spent an exhausting, but ultimately very satisfying couple of days here at Yankee evangelizing the kind of things that generally get poured into the “Web 2.0” bucket.

This afternoon we had a long “state of the web” session with a group of people from across the company, and I led everyone on a journey through open source, APIs, XML, weblogs, RSS, podcasting, tags, AJAX and wikis. The interesting part was when my Yankee brethren took the ideas I fed them, and started to imagine out loud how they could be used to enliven the useful storehouse of data, ideas and authority that Yankee brings to the table.
