Today we are in a world of such quick advancement that whatever is new today becomes old next month. Surfing the web these are some of the terms or things of 2010 which we may define the internet without.
I have compiled the top 5 internet or web 2.0 concepts which I had always been fascinated with.
If you not been living under a rock then you have probably heard these terms about a million times… Worth reading …
#1- Cloud Computing
Take an example of an IT company which “you” own. Now, you have to make sure that your employees have the right hardware and software they need to do their job. So, for every workspace for each employee you have to provide hardware, but along with that you also have to purchase software or software licenses to give to each and every of these employee work spaces. Means : “More You Hire More New Softwares and Registration have to be Bought”.
What Cloud Computing does is that, instead of installing a suite of software for each computer, you’d only have to load one application. That application would allow workers to log into a web-based service which hosts all the programs the user would need for his job. Remote machines owned by another company would run and host everything from e-mail to word processing to complex data analysis programs. Transfering all your data from your current storing method to the cloud may be a challenge so it might be worth looking into cloud migration dallas.
Cloud computing is great because you can securely store documents and access them on a variety of devices.
Thus, In a cloud computing system, there’s a significant workload shift. These applications are broadly divided into the following categories: Software as a Service, Utility Computing, Web Services, Platform as a Service, Managed Service Providers, Service Commerce, and Internet Integration.

#2- The Real Time Web
A geeky definition would be of or relating to computer (and web) systems or applications that update information at the same rate they receive information. Its like accessing new data without using the Refresh button on the dynamic web pages. Nowadays, most web services are becoming real time for better user end functionality.
Live examples of successful real time web integrated services includes Facebook & Twitter which are quickly engulfing the internet market share such that top web companies like google have to work hard constantly to provide us with more innovative realtime web apps to be in the top of the competition.

#3- Mobile Web Computing
Mobile computing is a generic term describing one’s ability to use technology while moving, as opposed to portable computers. But my definition would be to access all web application from a hand held device, integrating its hardware features. For example uploading photos or video from your mobile as soon as you take it or accessing to your favorite video or music by streaming live, or updating real time networks like facebook or twitter.
This is the reason why popular sites have their mobile versions or even iPhone specific applications.
#4- RSS (Really Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary)
Yes I know its not new… but that’s what its all about …. Its like something we can’t leave without… RSS solves a problem for people who regularly use the web. It allows you to easily stay informed by retrieving the latest content from the sites you are interested in.
Let me tell you if you take away RSS and systems like feedburner for a day then most of the web 2.0 world will come at a standstill. Whoever discovered it, really changed the way we read content online now.

#5- Google Wave
Not a concept actually, a reality yet to to happen as soon as max. people get their invites. Google Wave is an excellent personal communication and collaboration tool.
- The name was inspired by the Firefly television series in which a wave is an electronic communication (often consisting of a video call or video message).
- A wave can be both a conversation and a document where people can discuss and work together using richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more.
- A key feature of the protocol is that the “waves” are stored on the service provider’s servers instead of being sent between users.
- Although there’s lack of positive response but Google Wave still receives a fair share of positive press for its future capabilities and potential uses.
