  • Good Presentation. I realized how important it is for me because technology has change so quickly and I am happy that technology has given deaf people to discover new information and help us a lot since web emerged ! The only thing I am disappointned that You Tube and others with video media does not provide either closed-captioned or Subtitles that we can learn from .

  • Excellent presentation. It is an eye opener on how disconnected we might be from the rest of the virtual world.

  • Thank you for the comments and kind remarks. There's no doubt that we’re all still learning how to make the most of out the Web 2.0 and social media tools available today. A key component is being able to use the tools effectively. A great example is comparing the global Twitter feed to the individual feeds that can be set up by using TweetDeck to filter out conversations by key word. The value is so much greater when the tools are used effectively. That's why I tried to focus on the configuration of a 'GeoWeb' dashboard. To me, Google searches are an activity of the past. If you have a well configured dashboard, all of the relevant information from the Web and social networks should be pushed to you directly. It’s interesting because the concept is isn’t much different that the good old fashioned news paper; except this one is electronic and part of your day-to-day workflow online. Another interesting point is that if we all start using these tools to “listen” to the conversations out there, then it will be a lot easier to establish stronger online GIS communities in the future.

  • I really liked your presentation. It would be good to see some resources that discuss the proper way to engage in -- and measure the effectiveness of -- the different types of social networks and 2.0 technology. Blogs, microblogs, RSS, wikis --. newbies can easily get overwhelmed by the amount of info (even good info) and then give up without discovering the value. Or measure success by the wrong metric -- for example, how many followers instead of how often their content is re-tweeted -- and misjudge their effectiveness. But the value is there, as you pointed out so well.

  • Great presentation Allan. I work in public health and we are just learning about web 2.0 uses and applications. I think other sectors could learn from your survey and the value of knowing your audience.
