A friend referred me to an article by Tim O'Reilly (of O'Reilly books
fame) on Web 2.0 in which he is talking a lot about design patterns and
business models as a way of describing the next generation web

How do people feel about this Web 2.0 moniker? Is it useful? Need it be
as complicated as Tim O'Reilly manages to make it? For example, before
the more recent use of the term I always thought of Web 2.0 as just the
semantic web. Could we perhaps just say

Web 2.0 = Semantic web [+ AJAX] ?

What do you think? (And while we're at it, does anyone have a better
term for AJAX?)
