Bangalore to host Web innovation meet

Last updated on: December 11, 2007 17:04 IST

A conference focusing on potential and benefits of Web 2.0 titled 'Web Innovation 2007: The Nextgen Web Technology Revolution: 2.0 & Beyond' will be held in Bangalore from December 18.

It's an opportunity for young business and software decision makers to know about Web 2.0 and beyond, said Bal Tarakad, CEO of Trade Fairs & Conference International which is organising the two-day event.

"More than 45 Web 2.0 experts will speak at the conference, which is expected to attract 750 delegates from across the country," he told a press meet.

The phrase 'Web 2.0' hints at the second innings of the World Wide Web. The idea of Web 2.0 can relate to a transition of some websites from isolated information silos to interlinked computing platforms that function like locally-available software in the perception of the user.

Web 2.0 also includes a social element where users generate and distribute content, often with freedom to share and re-use. Chairman and CEO of Brickwork, Vivek Kulkarni, who is part of the conference advisory committee, said the event focuses on the importance of Web 2.0 technology and its applications.
