What’s under the hood ?

The most important aspect of a Web 2.0 application is what's under it's hood. That means, is there any substance to it ? Is it useful ? Does it do something better, faster, cheaper than some other website ? Would it make any difference to a target user if it dropped off the face of the planet ?

Just having a well designed, nice looking, AJAX-enhanced application isn't enough. Infact, that is just the beginning.

Under the hood, your application could be an amazing blog search engine, based on some neat algorithms (BlogRank ?), or something else. Is BlogPulse a Web 2.0 application ? Perhaps.

A bit more candyfloss and feel good stuff (from Strongspace):
