Via TheGalaxy, Dion Hinchcliffe, after his popular blog "Best Web 2.0 Software List", has recently written about the habits of highly effective Web 2.0 sites. Looking beyond Ajax and the visual site design aspect of Web 2.0, Dion tries to "capture the deeper design patterns and business models that seem to be powering the most successful Web sites and online companies today". He concludes that the essentials of leveraging Web 2.0 include ease of use, aggressively add feedback loops to everything, continuous release cycles etc etc. See Dion's blog here.
