Web 3.0, Enterprise 2.0

So Web 2.0 has hit saturation point... since so many prominent bloggers are already complaining? Bloggers, venture capitalists, technologists, programmers, etc, you name them... are starting to talk about Enterprise 2.0 and Web 3.0.

But besides all these talk about Enterprise 2.0 and Web 3.0, there has been lots of exciting stuff happening on the AJAX front.

1. Recently, Ajaxian talks about how the current use of Ajax is not really true "asynchronous communication." Among the four kinds of asynchronous usage proposed, Microlink is something that stands out. Check out the demo for TiddlyWiki, its fantastic, although I feel its a bit confusing.

2. ZK is now among most active. The live demo is impressive as well.
ZK is an open-source Ajax Web framework that enables rich UI for Web applications with no JavaScript and little programming. With event-driven feature-rich components, developing becomes as simple as programming desktops. With a markup language, designing becomes as simple as authoring HTML.

3. Google has released a new search API that lets you add an Ajax version of Google Search to your site (instead of just a simple search box that redirects to the Google webpage).

Lastly, if you don't want to hear anything about Ajax, you might want to check out some of the cool stuff that have been produced in Blender.
