Reviews

"The most exciting aspect of this current era of the Web, which has come to be known as Web 2.0, is that everything is read/write. Whether it's people communicating and sharing content with each other on social network sites like YouTube and Facebook, or computers talking to each using web services, or people personalizing their news using RSS and blogs, Web 2.0 is a two-way experience - it's no longer a one-way, broadcast model as it was in the Dot Com era of the Web. Dr. Gottfried Vossen and Stephen Hagemann have very clearly explained this transition to the new read/write era of the Web, and they paint a picture of how it might progress to the next stage via Semantic Web and other technologies. This book will help you understand the ongoing evolution of the Web, and push you to create applications that take advantage of the read/write Web."
