Web 2.0 (also commonly refered to as the collaborative web or user-generated web) is a marketing term coined by Tim O'Reilly of O'Reilly press[1], a publishing company famous for its technology-related textbooks, articles and tutorials.

The concept was used to generate renewed interest in web-related technologies, in the wake of the post-Web bubble-burst of 2000-2001.
