This essay aims to show the applicability of some of the theoretical assumptions made by Michel Foucault to the analysis of web 2.0. Foucault’s complex thought has been heavily debated in the academic worlds, and this debate continues today, nearly thirty years after his death. I will not, therefore, look at this debate in depth, but will instead take only some Foucauldian topics into account, in order to examine a number of issues in relation to the web.
