Stategic benefits of "Web 2.0"

Folks, I heard about "web 2.0" enough times in recent past to start
wondering what this is all about. I have heard people advocating it as if
this will solve everything. I have heard otherside arguing that people even
don't understand web 1.0, so why bother. I am wondering what you all think.
1. What is "strategic benefit" of adopting Web 2.0?
2. For what kind of firms/industry/business is this "mission critical"? And
who shall not bother to get in the race?
3. Example of firms who have done it and have taken comparative advantage in
the market place.
4.

Just for your interest, when I first got involved in card sorting I came
across a paper from a research team at an automotive manufacturer. They
had used card sorting in a big way to get people to say what dashboard
components and controls ought to be grouped together.

Password usability

There is a lot of research that I can find about security policies and usability when it comes to user passwords.

What I'm not able to find, however, is anything related to policies with FORBID special characters. We have a security specialist in IT who is insisting that the password policy must forbid special characters, because "special characters give users too many options to forget."

interactive interiors: further info

Thank you all for commenting

Nik, Iam waiting for your comments about the IIEED proposal I sent you

Mukesh, interesting link shall dig it more

Angel, the line between an active interior space and another art
installation is one of the possibilities an interior designer can fall into,
my idea was to develop the engagement qualities between the users or
visitors and the space to achieve a more sensory, mind manipulation and
emotional interactive experience.

Interaction design vs. Usability -> differencesincompetency

I beg to differ. Usability engineers are not de facto interaction
designers and vice versa.

User research such as usability testing (or user engineers, or whatever
other name we can think of...) is, without a doubt, imperative, but it
certainly is not (interaction) design. It identifies problems, but does
not, except maybe at the most detailed level, suggest adequate
solutions.
