2.0 - A Gargantuan Leap For Enterprise, Education and All Things Communication

"The communication landscape is changing - dramatically - at work and now at school. Web 2.0; Enterprise 2.0; Education 2.0."

"It's all about a free exchange of ideas and information which will eventually render traditional ways of working and learning - AKA version 1.0 - totally obsolete"

'2' is the key thing that sums up just how gargantuan this change will actually be.

As a software developer, major and minor version numbers are significant to me. Releasing an application with just a minor version upgrade - like 1.8569 for example - is just not as satisfying as a major release version like 2. Major releases signify considerable re-factoring or enhancements to a codebase or whatever came before and represent significant effort on the part of a development team.

Forums, wikis, blogs, RSS feeds, bookmarks and tagging - all used outside work - so why not utilise their benefits inside the workplace ?

UX is more important than ever

Aesthetically pleasing web designs and need to be maintained; however the methods of communicating and exchanging ideas that slice effortlessly through hierarchal and time restraints are what the future is made of and user interfaces need to simplify to facilitate that.

Web 2.0, Enterprise 2.0 and Education 2.0: communication as instantaneous as telepathy.

I'm reminded of a quote, 'the meaning of a communication is the response it receives'.

In traditional working or learning environments - Enterprise 1.0 or Education 1.0 - people may never get a response to a communication. With 2.0 there will be an instant response of some kind, and whether good or not, it will work to the benefit of whoever it was that was asking the question - corporation, student, teacher, manager, administrator, buyer, seller, user, programmer - anyone that needs an answer will have it placed before them instantaneously.
