Mashups, the real web 2.0 7 April 2010

Posted by greti79 in Design, Readings.

Tomski.com’s post The BBC’s Fifteen Web Principles says it best, if you look at item number three. “Do not attempt to do everything yourselves: Link to other high-quality sites instead. Your users will thank you. Use other people’s content and tools to enhance your site, and vice versa.”

Doesn’t this strike at the core of what web 2.0 means, it’s no longer about being the first to create something new, but rather the first at providing an interface that uses existing tools and databases to meet user needs. And all though the interface in of itself is a challenge, as you still have both novices and digital natives perusing the web, this is the future. It seems that as databases and formulas are perfected, we should spend an equal amount of time on designing and improving user interface.
