I’ve been invited to do a Web 2.0 presention to the Irish Dev / Irish Internet Association (it’s on the 21st Feb in the Morgan Hotel , Dublin, if you’re about in Ireland that day).
So, we have a problem. I consider myself to know a little about Web 2.0, but nobody knows everything about it, even the great Tim O’Reilly and his famous definition of Web 2.0. You might as well try and record every conversation happening in a busy room. I thought I would ask the community.
The Audience is tricky, as it is partly business (to whom Web 2.0 = next dot com boom) and partly technical (to whom Web 2.0 = Ajax) - for the record , I consider both views wrong. We also have only 30 minutes , including a (very quick) demo of how easy it is to migrate to Ajax (based on this Java.net article). A lot of the business concepts will be at the level of this article that I wrote for Ireland’s Business Plus magazine.
I have some notes on the Web 2.0 presentation taking shape over on my website. To cater for the technical side, we’ll probably also (quickly) cover some of the Ajax Enabled Java Frameworks (summary of these here).
What would you say if you were standing in front on this audience?
What do you think? How can I inject a cold dose of reality into this Web 2.0 business?
