What is Web 2.0?

Web 2.0 is simply a buzzword for user generated content (Web based communities). It is not AJAX nor is it flashy Web pages that behave like desktop apps.

Although the term is less than three years old and it is sometimes described as social networking, it should be noted that one of the earliest, big, profitable companies on the Web, Ebay, was one of the first Web 2.0 companies - and it dates back to 1995.

Repartitioned Hard Disk w/ Boot Camp

I recently moved from a G-5 desktop to a Mac Pro using Mac OS X's default data migration option which is available the first time you turn on a new Macintosh. The only problem was I forgot about the other disk partition I have which is running Leopard (Mac OS X 10.5) until all my data was migrated. Now what do I do?

Repartition on the Fly
The answer was simple. I used Apple's Boot Camp beta partition option to dynamically create a new disk partition. Of course, Boot Camp thought it was going to install Windows on the new partition. Instead, I just installed Leopard.
