IBMによる「developerWorks Interviews」の、Tim Berners-Leeへのインタビュー。

BERNERS-LEE: “Totally not. Web 1.0 was all about connecting people. It was an interactive space, and I think Web 2.0 is of course a piece of jargon, nobody even knows what it means. If Web 2.0 for you is blogs and wikis, then that is people to people. But that was what the Web was supposed to be all along.”

“And in fact, you know, this Web 2.0, quote, it means using the standards which have been produced by all these people working on Web 1.0. It means using the document object model, it means for HTML and SCG and so on, it’s using HTTP, so it’s building stuff using the Web standards, plus Java script of course.

So Web 2.0 for some people it means moving some of the thinking client side so making it more immediate, but the idea of the Web as interaction between people is really what the Web is. That was what it was designed to be as a collaborative space where people can interact.”

Sir Tim Berners-Leeにとっては、元々コミュニケーションのためにWWWを開発したのであって、今更ソーシャルなんとかって感じで騒いでいることについては、チガーウ!って言いたいのだろう。まぁその通りだわな。
