    • "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."
    • "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."
    • "Over-rated and not time saving… I think we are kidding ourselves if we think that the medium makes the content 'trendy'."
