Student in Gottfrieds research group focused on Web technologies.* Presents a complete view of Web 2.0 including services and technologies* Discusses potential new products and services and the technology and programming ability needed to realize them* Offers how to basics presenting development frameworks and best practices* Compares and contrasts Web 2.0 with the Semantic Web
Web 2.0 makes headlines, but how does it make money? This concise guide explains what's different about Web 2.0 and how those differences can improve your company's bottom line. Whether you're an executive plotting the next move, a small business owner looking to expand, or an entrepreneur planning a startup, Web 2.0: A Strategy Guide illustrates through real-life examples how businesses, large and small, are creating new opportunities on today's Web.

Mobilizing Generation 2.0 is a practical and immediately useful guide for nonprofits, political campaigns, organizers, and individuals who want to better understand how to use Web 2.0 technologies. In easy-to-understand terms, this accessible book describes how readers can leverage new media—blogs, online social networking, photo- and video-sharing sites, mobile phones, wikis, online maps, and virtual worlds—to recruit, engage, and mobilize young people.
The "Web 2.0" phenomena has become more pervasive than ever before. It is impacting the very fabric of our society and presents opportunities for those with knowledge. The individuals who understand the trends and opportunities Web 2.0 represents are racing to cash in while Web 2.0 companies like Google see their stock pass $600 a share. While many simply describe it as an interactive "Web of participation" embracing concepts such as "trusting your users", both business and technical analysts struggle to understand it in greater detail and the opportunity it represents. This fascinating book puts substance behind Web 2.0. More accurately, the authors of Web 2.0 Patterns -- Duane Nickull, Dion Hinchcliffe, and James Governor, who together have a great deal of experience with technical specifications and industry trends -- have distilled the core patterns of Web 2.0 coupled with an abstract model and reference architecture. This Web 2.0 knowledge was distilled using several high-profile Web 2.0 companies as examples. The result is a base of knowledge that developers, business people, futurists, and entrepreneurs can understand and use as a source of ideas and inspiration. Web 2.0 Patterns examines the Web 2.0 phenomena from it's humble origins to it's current state. After piecing together Web 1.0 architecture, the book researches successful Web 2.0 services such as Google AdSense, Flickr, BitTorrent, MySpace, Facebook and Wikipedia to explain why they are not just different economically and socially, but technically. Web 2.0 Patterns goes on to examine: A Model for Web 2.0 -- An in-depth look at the evolution of the Client-Server model into a more elaborate model for Web 2.0. It illustrates concepts such as "servers" evolving into a services (SOA) tier to facilitate interactions between systems and humans.A Web 2.0 Reference Architecture - A generic component view that helps decision-makers recognize the basic patterns in existing Web 2.0 applications and software that can be repurposed for other commercial ventures.Specific patterns of Web 2.0 -- Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), Software as a Service pattern (SaaS), Participation-Collaboration Pattern, AJAX, Mashups, Rich User Experience (a.k.a. RIA), Collaborative Tagging Systems (Folksonomy), and more which can be repurposed to other businesses of technologies. In true Web 2.0 fashion, Nickull, Hinchcliffe, and Governor also present the reference model and patterns in Web 2.0 Patterns on their companion web site so that others in the industry can augment it and continue the discussion.About the authors: Duane Nickull (http:
Web 2.0 has arrived--find out how it can transform teaching and learning!What is Web 2.0? Once upon a time, Web sites were isolated information "silos"--all content and no functionality. Today, the next generation of Web sites gives power to the end-user, providing visitors with a new level of customization, interaction, and participation. Many Web sites now allow users to upload, categorize, and share content easily. Weblogs and podcasts allow anyone to publish or broadcast on any topic. Wikis provide information that is constantly updated by the end-user. Open-source software is free and customizable. These new technologies are changing our relationship to the Internet.What can Web 2.0 tools offer educators? Web 2.0: New Tools, New Schools provides a comprehensive overview of the emerging Web 2.0 technologies and their use in the classroom and in professional development. Topics include blogging as a natural tool for writing instruction, wikis and their role in project collaboration, podcasting as a useful means of presenting information and ideas, and how to use Web 2.0 tools for professional development. Also included are a discussion of Web 2.0 safety and security issues and a look toward the future of the Web 2.0 movement. Web 2.0: New Tools, New Schools is essential reading for teachers, administrators, technology coordinators, and teacher educators.
Want to tap the power behind search rankings, product recommendations, social bookmarking, and online matchmaking? This fascinating book demonstrates how you can build Web 2.0 applications to mine the enormous amount of data created by people on the Internet. With the sophisticated algorithms in this book, you can write smart programs to access interesting datasets from other web sites, collect data from users of your own applications, and analyze and understand the data once you've found it. Programming Collective Intelligence takes you into the world of machine learning and statistics, and explains how to draw conclusions about user experience, marketing, personal tastes, and human behavior in general -- all from information that you and others collect every day. Each algorithm is described clearly and concisely with code that can immediately be used on your web site, blog, Wiki, or specialized application. This book explains: Collaborative filtering techniques that enable online retailers to recommend products or media Methods of clustering to detect groups of similar items in a large dataset Search engine features -- crawlers, indexers, query engines, and the PageRank algorithm Optimization algorithms that search millions of possible solutions to a problem and choose the best one Bayesian filtering, used in spam filters for classifying documents based on word types and other features Using decision trees not only to make predictions, but to model the way decisions are made Predicting numerical values rather than classifications to build price models Support vector machines to match people in online dating sites Non-negative matrix factorization to find the independent features in adataset Evolving intelligence for problem solving -- how a computer develops its skill by improving its own code the more it plays a game Each chapter includes exercises for extending the algorithms to make them more powerful. Go beyond simple database-backed applications and put the wealth of Internet data to work for you. "Bravo! I cannot think of a better way for a developer to first learn these algorithms and methods, nor can I think of a better way for me (an old AI dog) to reinvigorate my knowledge of the details." -- Dan Russell, Google "Toby's book does a great job of breaking down the complex subject matter of machine-learning algorithms into practical, easy-to-understand examples that can be directly applied to analysis of social interaction across the Web today. If I had this book two years ago, it would have saved precious time going down some fruitless paths." -- Tim Wolters, CTO, Collective Intellect
