Microsoft Live Labs: “World 2.0 not Web 2.0”

Category: .NET, Editorial

Earlier today at the Search Champs event I announced the formation of Live Labs, an exciting new partnership between MSN and MSR. I also announced that Live Labs has sponsored a new set of academic research grants, and 10 MSR PhD Fellowships. This is all really exciting stuff and it was nice to be able to announce it to the Search Champs directly,

That came from Microsoft, announced by Gary Flake.

The announcement also came with a manifesto (Word doc) which talks about “World 2.0” versus just “Web 2.0”.

Maybe we will see more applied tech from Microsoft on the web. Microsoft Research always has some great stuff (their Phoenix VM is killer IMO).

In my last article on social networking I propose a new definition of Web 2.0 and highlight a critical aspect of global networking related to a language issue. I also throw out the idea of assessing every concept developed in any culture to create a Global Dictionary which can be used by web services to provide people with highly reliable translations of web pages. If you are interested to read it, you can find it in my blog (World 2.0). Comments, criticisms and opinions are welcome.
