The concept of "Web 2.0" began with a conference brainstorming session between O'Reilly and MediaLive International. Dale Dougherty, web pioneer and O'Reilly were the ones who thought of this idea.
[edit: actually, the origin of Web 2.0 was a book by one Dermot McCormack, titled Web 2.0: 2003-'08 AC (After Crash) The Resurgence of the Internet & E-Commerce in 2002, three years before O'Reilly supposedly coined the term.]

Web 2.0 refers to a perceived second generation of web-based communities and hosted services -- such as social-networking sites, wikis and folksonomies -- which aim to facilit…ate collaboration and sharing between users. The term became popular following the first O'Reilly Media Web 2.0 conference in 2004. Although the term suggests a new version of the World Wide Web, it does not refer to an update to any technical specifications, but to changes in the ways software developers and end-users use the web. According to Tim O'Reilly, "Web 2.0 is the business revolution in the computer industry caused by the move to the internet as platform, and an attempt to understand the rules for success on that new platform." Web 2.0 makes website more interactive and user friendly. You can use an internet site developed with web 2.0 technology more like a desktop application. Answe : Web 2.0 is associated with web applications and facilitate information sharing, interoperability, user-centered design and collaboration on the World Wide Web. A Web 2.0 site allows users to interact and collaborate with each other in a social media dialogue as creators (prosumers) of user-generated content in a virtual community, in contrast to websites where users (consumers) are limited to the passive viewing of content that was created for them. Examples of Web 2.0 include social networking sites, blogs, wikis, video sharing sites, hosted services, web applications, mashups and folksonomies.
