Every Sunday I scan, collect and organize all my links I ran into the previous week and I send them out to our community of practice in Capgemini that is about SaaS, social collaboration tools, mash up applications and Rich Internet Applications. Since these links are public links there is no reason to not publish them here on our technology blog, especially since publishing them here will give more people the opportunity to read all the information. This week there was the introduction of the term Web Squared and the release of the long awaited new version of Firefox. Besides those two big events quite some buzz about HTML5, Government2.0, Michael Jackson in relation to the Internet and Augmented Reality.

- The evolution of client-side scripting
- In the past years browser makers have been working very hard to improve their scripting engines and add new DOM APIs. There are currently so many projects going on that it sometimes starts dazzling me and I have a hard time to keep track of which feature belongs to what project or has been included in which browser. This article attempts to give an overview of all the major innovations that have recently arrived or will hopefully come our way soon.

Augmented Reality!? That’s so 2008
Has AR jumped the shark? Well if Virtual Magicians are using it I think that’s your answer. For me the best application of this is in store and also with kids toys. Both applications have far more useful applications than a fun web toy.

- The Evolving Web In 2009: Web Squared Emerges To Refine Web 2.0
It’s been five years now that we’ve begun to understand what Web 2.0 is, starting way back in 2003. It’s been a fairly impressive if winding road as a new online generation was born. But far from getting long in the tooth, along the way Web 2.0 became vitally important — even central in some cases — to the very future of global culture and business. Oh certainly, sometimes we get tired of the term itself, and admittedly it doesn’t describe something necessarily new anymore, but what we just do these days. But the concepts identified as Web 2.0 have proved to be highly insightful, even prescient, and are used around the world daily to guide everything from product development to the future of government.
