Today we have cake, a birtday cake with two candles. Hip hip for Ajax. It’s been two years already since Jesse James Garrett posted his seminal essay, “Ajax: A New Approach to Web Applications”. And the web has changed since then, into what we call Web 2.0 today. Of course it’s only a simple, one-word name for a collection of different techniques already in use for a while by different sites. Still having one defining (and often misused) term for a technique to create a new, richer web inspired a new wave of interactive, social websites. We are only at the beginning of a new chapter of the brief history of the Internet, but the name Ajax will be printed in bold in it’s first paragraphe.
