Heard ‘Round the Blogosphere: Web 2.0

Regarding the definition of web 2.0, a recent Digg user had this to say: “Web 2.0 is a new buzz word that will allow startups to get funding again if they can tag themselves as web 2.0… If your website has gradient colors and uses ajax you’re already web 2.0 baby!” Somewhat true, but I prefer Nicholas Roussos’ definition of the term: “What I find most interesting about Web 2.0 is that it’s really a return to Berners-Lee’s vision of Web 1.0… the Web is finally meeting its original potential.”

Maybe I should stop using that phrase (how avant-garde, eh!). Any ideas? The social web? Slick website? Cyberspace 2.0? Post your web 2.0 replacement names in the comments below.
