What I am investigating?
I am investigating how web 2.0 has changed the evolution of Web design.
How it is relevant to web 2.0 technologies and business and the position i am taking?
I will be looking at the changes of visual and technical design from web 1.0 to 2.0 – showing how web designers created websites during the web 1.0 times and comparing it the new Web 2.0 concept. I will use an example from Flickr to show various scripting technologies used which play a more advance role. Also how web designers have had to change to adjust to new technologies.
What research resources have you located?
