  8. 9. We're not giving any answers - just asking questions and asking you to think
  9. 10. Web 1.0 1989 - 2004(?)
  10. 11. Web 2.0 is … a term referring to a) improved communication and collaboration between people via social-networking technologies, b) improved communication between separate software applications ("mashups") via open Web standards for describing and accessing data, and c) improved Web interfaces that mimic the real-time responsiveness of desktop applications within a browser window. (Eysenbach; March 2008)
  11. 12. Web 2.0 2004(ish) - 2015(?)
  12. 14. … or we can view Web 2.0 as ... web-applications that get more useful the more people use them ... - and apply this to health IT (Chris Paton – personal email discussion, March 2009)
  13. 15. Web 2.0 claims: Applications will provide benefit to the international health and nursing informatics communities - will allow users to interact with a dynamic, multimedia, and engaging Web platform - will foster interaction, communities, etc. - will change the way we work - will change healthcare, medicine, nursing
  14. 16. Web 2.0 claims: Are any of these true? Do we have any evidence? How much do nurses use them - as opposed to other health (informatics) professionals? Plenty of consumers – not so many producers or much real interaction The 1% rule - if you get a group of 100 people online then one will create content, 10 will "interact" with it (commenting or offering improvements) and the other 89 will just view it.
  15. 17. <ul><li>What Web 2.0 tools can do for us </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Creating content – 'traditional' and new types </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>(blogs, wikis, YouTube) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>New ways of presenting information </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sharing content </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>(RSS feeds, social networking) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Connecting with people </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>(Social networking – Facebook etc) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Changing the balance of power? </li></ul></ul>
  16. 18. Some Web 2.0 tools we are using here Blog (Wordpress) - to report on event; encourage interaction and 'virtual participation' Twitter (@ni2009) - to report on event; encourage interaction and 'virtual participation' Facebook (NI2009 'event') - social networking YouTube, podcast (future use) - recording of sessions etc.
  17. 22. Blogs Publish content - text mainly – but also graphics and multiple media - sharing of others' content - frequent updates possible; rapid publication - distribution by RSS feeds (to RSS reader, email, etc) - one or multiple authors - 'editorial' policies vary - can be transient opinion or highly researched - but increasing issues around who is reading them - eg: - FTC (Federal Trade Commission) looking at ethical issues (FTC plans to monitor blogs for claims and payments, accessed 06.22.09)
  18. 25. Social networking (Facebook, LinkedIn, Ning, and many others) - focus on interaction, collaboration - social or professional (or mix of both) - allow multiple media, inclusion of and or links to other applications to give rich environment - increasing links between apps (eg Twitter feed on Facebook) (- and many rely on open source)
  19. 28. Wikis Collaborative document production and editing environments - allow 'roll-back' to earlier versions, corrections - usually multi-author (often 'experts') - authentication systems; expectation of evidence (eg Wikipedia) - mainly text, but multiple media possible

  23. 36. RSS (Really Simple Syndication) - means of pushing information to users from such items as wikis, blogs, and other 'active' net sites - different formats are possible - able to be 'read' by separate 'reader applications' as well as web browsers - allow for users to be kept 'up-to-date' without visiting the actual site (, 06.22.09)
  24. 37. <ul><li>RSS examples (as screen shots): </li></ul><ul><ul><li>CNN </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Blogs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Health oriented </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Health informatics - 'krew' </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Chris Paton's </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  25. 41. Microblogging, short/instant messaging Twitter - 140 character limit - current exponential growth - followers and following – quasi 'community' - interaction, retweets, private messages - many ways to read and post (third party apps) - 'the jury is still out' on long-term value
  26. 44. Where next?
  27. 45. Web 3.0 2012(ish?) - ???? Semantic Web; 'Web of things'
