Yesterday, out of the blue, Jay Jordan sent me the following message:
Well, what the heck... why not? So I arrived early and watched for the baseball cap with a B, waiting for a blind date who didn't know I was coming. Soon after 8, Marshall and Curt arrived and I introduced myself, and we set about deconstructing Web 2.0 (mostly they deconstructed, and I listened). Highlights of my Monday night site map follow:
Lulu Self publishing saleable content, one book, CD, DVD or podcast at a time.
Grazr - Web-based outline processor for better organized feeds (look under TopTen Sources for the Library Blogs); uses OPML (Outline Processor Markup Language).
Freedom Toaster Free open-source access kiosk - no internet needed (and where is Knysna, anyway???)
Netsquared.com "remixing the web for social change"
Podleaders.com Tom Raftery's podcast thoughtleader interview site. Got a question for an interviewee?
Ohmynews.com Citizen Journalism in South Korea... "Asian participatory anything is just way ahead, whether it's Japan or Korea"
Library Stuff Steven Cohen's Library 2.0 Weblog
ResourceShelf Gary Price's news digest for IT professionals
Raw Danny Ayers, semantic-webhead RDF, RSS, metadata wonk tranplanted from northern England to Lucca, Italy.
Buzzmachine Jef Jarvis' blog on digital culture and media
Pledgebank Social contracts in social software
Frappr Link your group/photos/ideas/favorite places to the GoogleMaps API
Nicholas Carr Does IT matter?
And then, as if all that wasn't enough, I got home around midnight to dessert, from Lorcan:
