I’ve been working over the past few weeks on a nifty little tool that summarizes a number of W3C technologies, including the Mobile Web Best Practices, in a mobile-friendly format, called the W3C Cheatsheet.

See my post in the W3C blog to learn more about it, and send your feedback!

Web 2.0 illustrated

Filed under:

I am by no mean good at making graphics, but I very much like the idea of turning complex ideas into easier-to-grasp graphics.

As I was invited to talk about “Web 2.0” a month ago at the WITFOR conference, I wanted to use a graphic that would illustrate Tim O’Reilly’s definition of Web 2.0 in 7 points.

I started to look for existing illustrations that I could re-use, but while there are many illustrations of what Web 2.0 is in general, I didn’t find any that focused on Tim’s “official” definition; since a big part of the message I wanted to convey was that Web 2.0 was not (only) a buzzword but was actually a fairly well-defined concept, I couldn’t just re-use any of these vague illustrations.
