    • Practical uses for Web 2.0 – an overview Phil Bradley http://www.philb.com
    • What is Web 2.0?
      • Let’s just not go there shall we?
      • Definitions are less important than what you can do with it
      • Oh, if you really insist…
    • What is Web 2.0?
      • Web 2.0 is a term often applied to a perceived ongoing transition of the World Wide Web from a collection of websites to a full-fledged computing platform serving web applications to end users. Ultimately Web 2.0 services are expected to replace desktop computing applications for many purposes.
        • Wikipedia entry
      • Web 1.0 was computer based
      • Web 2.0 uses the web as a platform
      • Web 1.0 relied on installed software
      • Web 2.0 uses the browser
      • Web 1.0 was solitary
      • Web 2.0 encourages sharing
      • Web 1.0 was individuals working alone
      • Web 2.0 is community, sharing wisdom
      • Web 2.0 is the portability of data
      • Web 1.0 was data in one place
      • Web 1.0 was about consuming (data)
      • Web 2.0 is about creating data
        • Weblogs
        • Photograph sharing
        • Wikis
        • Collaborative resources
        • Social networking
        • Bookmarking
      • Web 1.0 was home pages
      • Web 2.0 is weblogs
      • Web 1.0 was tracking information down
      • Web 2.0 is having information come to you
      • Web 1.0 was badging your content
      • Web 2.0 is getting the answer out there quickly
      • Web 1.0 was slow transfer rates
      • Web 2.0 is about broadband
      • Web 1.0 was hardware $s
      • Web 2.0 is broadband $s
      • Web 1.0 was getting it perfect
      • Web 2.0 is doing it and moving on
      • Web 1.0 was stationary
      • Web 2.0 is mobile
      • Web 1.0 was about limitations
      • Web 2.0 is about a state of mind
    • Yes… but?
      • “ It’s vacuous marketing hype”
      • “ Web 2.0 is totally silly”
      • “ Meaningless”
      • “ is made entirely of pretentious self serving morons.”
      • “ a lot of thin but very hot air blown at you by those who are convinced that having nothing to say is by no means a good reason to shut up.”
    • So…
      • Is it a question of degrees of difference?
    • Or…
      • A difference of kind? (Is it or isn’t it a fad?)
    •  
    • So…
      • How can I use it?
    • Communication & news gathering
      • Weblogs
        • Create a library weblog
        • Additional or new library resources
        • Introduce members of staff
        • Use it as a repository of data and information by using categories and tags
        • Don’t regard a weblog as a diary – it’s an important website in its own right…
    •  
    •  
    • Weblogs continued…
      • Use the weblog RSS feed on the site home page as a news feed
      • Encourage people to add the feed to their start page or RSS reader
      • Create a different weblog for a different subject area – invite other authors
      • Use it in a different way, on a different page
    •  
    • So what exactly is RSS again?
      • Really Simple Search
      • Rich Site Summary
      • ‘ Read some stories’
      • Newsfeeds
      • It’s a common way of transferring data from one resource to another one
    •  
    •  
      • The version a human being sees:
      • The RSS version:

      • <p><a href=&quot;http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/6385487.stm&quot; title=&quot;BBC NEWS | Technology | Google charges for web programs&quot;>Google charges for web programs</a>. Well, this is all over the blogs and news at the moment - my link goes to the BBC version of the story. No great surprise here really; Google is going to start selling a premium version of their email, calendar, word processing and messaging package. It'll cost £27 or 40€ or $50 which includes more storage, phone help and 99.9% uptime (which is actually downtime of about 9 hours per year if you don't want to work it out yourself) and it'll be advertisement free.</p>
      • <p>Google is of course saying that it's not an attack on Microsoft.</p>
      • Google specific

      • Each RSS resource has its own URL and other applications can point to that URL, gather the data and display it in a different format.
