The web 2.0 theme, which can be found on a ton of web app-type services, is something I am trying to become more familiar with along with its merits and demerits. To that end, can people either list some web 2.0 sites off the top of their head, or point me to an existing resource or write up on 2.0 design theory?
To give you an idea of what I am talking about just in case the 2.0 name doesnt give you a good picture:
and so on. Apologies that this list is so short... but I think you will get the idea of what I am talking about organizationally/aesthetically by visiting. (Something about these sites scream startup, even if they aren't much of a startup.)
I am especially looking for sites that are app-driven and some sort of community aspect, either a forum or something else. (hasoffers is not good on this point, but it has that 2.0 charm.)
I hope that this isn't hopelessly vague. I know 2,0 is just a buzzword but I have noticed a startling amount of consistency in the past several years with 2.0 trends. I am just looking for design ideas, especially for creating a design that will both be around an app/product but also have significant community aspect.
Thanks for any suggestions.
