We had a discussion about Web 2.0 some weeks back so I was interested to
see an item in yesterday's Guardian Technology:,,1786749,00.html

Apparently it is Dale Dougherty at O'Reilly that coined the term, Tim
O'Reilly just talked it up. Also, it appears that O'Reilly has
trademarked "Web 2.0" when applied to conferences. So anyone else
wanting to set up a Web 2.0 Conference is going to have to call it Web
II or something!
