ZDNet UK reported on Gartner's latest report in their article, Gartner:Web 2.0 Set to Transform Business. Two major insights, Web 2.0 technologies are expected to move into the final phase of adoption and have a "change-inducing impact on businesses." At the top of the list were mashups, software as services, and on-line services (think social networks like Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, etc).
Virtual Worlds and Second Life were reported to "represent an important media channel to support and build broader communities of interest". I agree.
