Where 2.0 Gives the World Meaning

Wow! What a title. But this Wired News article about Where 2.0 does give a good sense of what the excitement was all about this week. I hadn't been following the development of the program closely, so I was as wide-eyed as other attendees as I attended the talks and saw all the amazing work that is going on in this field. Nat Torkington and Brady Forrest, the conference co-chairs, did a great job of bringing together key people from a fascinating segment of the emerging future.

I've been following your comments etc on Web 2.0 for quite some time, i've been on the fence as although the web2.0 movement makes great points, equally the anti-web2.0 also raise valid ones.

My overall question to one and all, is when does the web stop being the web? Given that accessing API's can be done through web services and what not, but isn't the world wide web itself looking a bit old, especially accessing document centric information through a browser?

If you change the agent in which you access the 'web' then doesn't that govern the new frontier? I say this as with FLEX and VISTA on the horizon and more and more energy being put into client-side apps that have a mutated runtime build as you need approach to accessing data, then isn't the word "web" a legacy term?
