Library 2.0 Starter List January 27, 2006

Posted by Michael Sensiba in Library 2.0, Web 2.0 Tools.

As was discussed in WSULS’s Emerging Issues Group meeting yesterday, here’s a list of some categories and examples of “Web 2.0” or “Read/Write Web” applications. Future posts will add more categories and more examples of each, but here’s a basic list to get you started thinking about and exploring these ideas. [Note: I added Meebo to the Instant Messaging category, as it “lives on the web”]

Blogging (Blogger)

Blog Search (Technorati)

Blog Filters (Memeorandum)

Peer Production News (Digg)

RSS Aggregation (Bloglines)

Personal Homepages (Netvibes)

Social Tagging (del.icio.us)

Photo Sharing (flickr)

Social Networking (MySpace)

Project Management (Basecamp)

Wikis (PBWiki)

Instant Messaging (Meebo, Trillian)

Podcasting (Podzinger)

File Sharing (Bit Torrent)

Mashups (Mapbuilder)

Think Big will be a repository for investigations of new technologies, links to pilot uses and thoughts about new uses for existing technologies. It will also point to relevant external websites, news sources and blog entries that will further our understanding of these technologies. Your comments, discussion and extensions, including links, are welcome.
