  19. 19. Trendy or Time Wasting? <ul><li>&quot;I 'get' Web 2.0 technologies when I see a use for them. So I 'get' del.icio.us and bloglines but I don't 'get' Facebook or MySpace. … I actually use Web 2.0 much more at work for professional development than I do at home for recreation.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Sometimes I wonder if we're just looking for ways to use these tools instead of having a need and then looking for the right tool.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Over-rated and not time saving… I think we are kidding ourselves if we think that the medium makes the content 'trendy'.&quot; </li></ul>Trendy or Timewasting ?
