Web 2.0 definition in 2006

Question : “Are You Going To Be A Spider? Or A Dinasour? In The Web 2.0 World?”

You thought you were pretty hot when you had a website and paid someone $1000 to optimize it! So where is all the traffic? Weren’t they supposed to be pouring in? WRONG! While you were sleeping, the Web 2.0 effect has changed the whole ball game. And the rules! The Internet user doesn’t just browse anymore, they can jump right in and play and create and manipulate data!

Tim O’Reilly provided a compact definition of Web 2.0 in 2006:

“Web 2.0 is the business revolution in the computer industry caused by the move to the internet as platform, and an attempt to understand the rules for success on that new platform. Chief among those rules is this: Build applications that harness network effects to get better the more people use them.”

Perhaps the simple definition can be found in the word “you”. Time magazine summed it up best by making reference to the “you” in user generated content. Web 2.0 is basically all the platforms that give us this brave new user-powered interactive Internet, generally referred to as social media. YouTube, LinkedIn, MySpace, Flickr, de.licio.us, Wikipedia – these are all sites and tools you need to start spinning a web and connecting too. Or you can sit back and take another nap. It’s time to WAKE UP !

So what are you going to do? First and foremost, start a blog with an RSS feed, on your site or along side your site. Blogging is where it’s at. It’s not just for geeks anymore. Businesses of all sizes have joined the blogosphere by the millions. They’re seeking to connect with customers, increase their credibility and grow their businesses. You have to be an expert of sorts to really SEO your website with proper tags. But guess what, just by starting a blog with an RSS feed, and placing keyword categories into your blog, you are in the game and the whole tagging system.

Get Googled better and faster. Join as many interactive sites as you can. Digg, MyBlogLog, BlogCatalog, Naymz, Squidoo. And of course, always link back to your sites in your posts and creations, in these user-created content havens. Become the spider! The more connections you have the more your own sites prosper.

Use interactive platforms on your sites. Create polls, membership forums, feedback forms, even allow user contributions. It’s all about being interactive. It’s about sharing, connecting, linking and spinning your own intricate web out into the Internet. You can’t just sit there on top of your static website and wait for people to come. Those days are GONE.

A night of Ramadhan called Laylatul Qadr

Amongst the nights of Ramadhan there is one called ‘Laylatul Qadr’ a night that is noted for its great blessings.. In the Quran Karim describes it as being greater in blessing and spiritual virtue than a thousand months, which in turn means that it is greater than eighty three years and four months. Indeed the granting of this night to the faithful Muslim is a great favor. Fortunate indeed is that person who attains the full blessings of this night by spending it in the ibadah (prayer) of Allah because he has then attained reward for the ibadah of eighty three years and four months and even more.

Based on one hadith, Aa’isha radhiyal’lahu anha reports that Rasulullah (The Messenger of Allah) s.a.w. said: “Seek Laylatul Qadr among the evenly numbered nights of the last ten days of the month of Ramadhan“.

This full of blessed night is mentioned in the Quran in the Surah Qadr. Where in this surah, it says that on the specific night, the Quran was sent down from Al Lawhul Mahfuz (The preserved Tablet) to the heavens (above the earth). The mere fact that the Quran was revealed on this night would have been sufficient reason to explain its greatness.

Another hadith by Anas radhiyal’lahu anhu wherein Rasulullah s.a.w. is reported to have said “On Laylatul Qadr, Jibra’il alayhis’ salam comes down with a group of angels and make doa’s (prayers) for mercy for every one whom they find busy in ibadah“.

Abu Hurairah radhiyal’lahu anhu reports that Rasulullah s.a.w. said: “Whoever stands in prayer and ibadah on the night of Power with sincere faith and with sincere hope of gaining reward, his previous sins are forgiven“.

Today already 15 Ramadhan, so we must get ready and prepare to get this full of blessed night Laylatul Qadr.

Rasulullah s.a.w said: “Allah says: ‘O son of Adam, spend your time in My service and I shall enrich you with independence and freedom, and I shall remove poverty from you. Otherwise I shall fill you with obligations and duties while your poverty and needs shall not dissappear’ “.

Commentary from Maulana Muhammad Zakariyya on this blessed night:

Who can have any doubt as to the misfortune of him who is either deprived or deprives himself of the greatness of Laylatul Qadr? Who can doubt the misfortune of him who misses all the bestowed favors? Indeed there are so many of us, who during the course of their service and duties of employment have stay awake throughout the years by night. How difficult can it be for people like these should they, for the sake of gaining the reward of over eighty years ibadah, stay awake for one month in the way of Allah service? For them the task should not be too difficult, but, because of the lack of interest, there is no urge in the heart. If that was present, then not one night, but a thousand nights in worshipping Allah would become exceedingly easy“.

May Allah blessed us all and may Allah gives us strength to find this one greatness night of all, Laylatul Qadr.
