Social Libraries

In my quest to become the Prince of Web 2.0 and King of Library 2.0. I have discovered an excellent resource called Five Weeks to a Social Library. The course was run in February 2007 for a few lucky worldwide candidates. However most of the resources are still on the website and can be viewed or listened there. Of course, there is no social interaction with the candidates as the course has now finished - and guess what part was supposed to have been the best! To be honest, it sometimes feels like entering a room long after the party has finished - but by looking at the CDs you can still make out what people were dancing to.

Still, I am enjoying discovering the wonders of Web 2.0 via the course, even if it has taken me five weeks just to get to the end of week 1.

Web 2.0 Parody

I give in! No sooner do I try to get to grips with Web 2.0, than I discover that some bright sparks are already so accustomed to it that they are making parodies of it. Having said that, it is well observed and at times very funny.

I haven't come across this blog before but it seems full of interesting things so I think I'll subscribe to it.
