CHOICE Review

Vossen and Hagemann (both, Univ. of Munster, Germany) provide a critical examination of the concepts, standards, and technologies that define Web 2.0. A helpful history and overview of the "preparatory stream for Web 2.0" includes the established standards (XML, HTML, CSS, and RSS), the familiar Web creation tools, blogs, wikis, and social networks, and the infrastructure components, Web scripting, Web services, and P2P networks. Newer technologies, Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) programmed with Ajax or Ruby on Rails, mashups derived from application programming interfaces (APIs) or Web procedure calls (WPCs), and social tagging then enable Web 2.0. The authors summarize these enablers by stating that RIAs "increase functionality," mashups provide "better data usage," and tagging offers "more social interaction." Distinctive Web 2.0 business models are based on advertising, information intermediaries, software as a service (SaaS), and cocreation of content. The convergence of the Semantic Web encompassing RDF, OWL, and ontologies with Web 2.0 may become Web 3.0. Microformats, structured tagging, and folksonomies could lead the way. Each chapter is concise and insightful from a business and technology perspective, and the bibliography is highly relevant for further study. Vossen and Hagemann provide an excellent source for learning about Web 2.0. Summing Up: Highly recommended. General readers; lower-division undergraduates; professionals/practitioners; technical program students. M. Mounts Dartmouth College
