I wish *I* knew what the term "Web 2.0" means.  So far,
I can identify pieces:  AJAX, Javascript, DHTML.  Flash is
part of Web 1.5 (which is Web 1.0 + plugins), or perhaps
I'm just confused at this point, but I doubt I'm the
only one.

At a very high level, the user just clicks or double-clicks
on something and things automagically happen.  Some of
them may be local (Notepad), some of them Web-related (the
browser proper), some of them might be a combination of
Web and AJAX (I don't know precisely what they're doing
but Yahoo!'s quotes page now shows trades as they are
broadcast/recorded, for example).

An important issue to consider in this Brave New Web(tm). :-)
