50 page document? I thought most of this stuff never got beyond a Powerpoint presentation given as a keynote address.

Yeah, I'm not sure if I would identify web 2.0 as hot air, one way I can be sure it's not hot air is that there are not a bunch of 'IT Architects' running around me right now talking about web 2.0, like those talking about Taxonomies with SOA infrastructure architecting solutions for the new semantic ultraweb and stuff. Which in the end turns out to be a 50 page document that nobody reads, as opposed to an application that somebody might use.

I intend to write a fuller defence of my choosing of this theme, but in
short my opinion is this: there has been a marked change in the types of
web application we are seeing today, fuelled in part by the maturation
of XML, a revival in browser technology, a willingness to share data
openly and new web development frameworks.  These aspects cover the four
tracks in XTech, detailed in the CFP at

These applications are touted by some as "Web 2.0" (as well as a lot
else, admittedly!)  Whether you like the name or not, I think the
coincidence of the technologies and trends are important.  XTech will
be, as ever, intensely practical and no-nonsense.
