Web 2.0 – it’s moving faster!

Feeling like the world is moving at an ever- increasing pace? Is your head spinning just trying to keep up with the changes our modern world presents on a daily/hourly/minutely (?) basis? Then don’t worry – you’re not alone!! I read in the newspaper yesterday that at the age of 42 we become less able to engage with new technologies, and more likely to ask for assistance from younger family members when adopting or engaging with computers, mobile phones etc. If this is true (and I don’t believe everything I read!) then I am 11 years away from this marker, and already I feel left behind!!

However I felt much better when I came across the following list (which was much longer… I have edited it to about three quarters of its original length) of all of the new types of ‘2.0’ webpages that are being developed. These are basically interactive webpages that either combine (mashup) previously used pages or provide a new way to interact with information and other web users. For each of these headings, there are at least 50-100 examples online – there is just no way to keep up!

I’m keeping my eye on e-learning 2.0, knowledge 2.0 and tagging 2.0 – sites that deal with how we learn and share knowledge, and how we manage to make some kind of order out of it!

An example of tagging 2.0 is the wellknown site de.licio.us – basically an online bookmark collection that allows you to store all of your favourite sites in one place that can be accessed from any computer. I think I’ve mentioned it before: http://del.icio.us/6hunterlane

– I’m going to spend some time looking through what it has to offer. Anyway, enjoy the list below – don’t get too overwhelmed!!!

 Better sign off… need to keep surfing!!
