    • Intro to Web 2.0 Using Blogs, RSS and Wikis in the Workplace Presented by: Paul Clark email: sirpauljamesclark@gmail.com
    • Background
      • Berners-Lee envisioned a read/write web
        • We weren’t ready in the 1990’s for such a big step
        • We started with a read-only web – a place where everyone could read whatever they wanted, but only a select few (programmers) could write web pages. This was Web 1.0.
    • Enter Web 2.0
      • Web 2.0 or the Read/Write Web fulfills Berners-Lee’s original vision for the WWW
      • The introduction of tools like blogs, wikis, and RSS have made it so that anyone can write to the web
      • The question is – how can you use these tools to better work-flow in your office?
    • Blogs & Wikis
      • Blogs
        • Updated by one or more set authors
        • Regularly updated
        • Used for journal-like content
        • Made up of posts
        • Posts sorted reverse chronologically
        • Sometimes allows for comments
        • Updates delivered via RSS
      • Wikis
        • Anyone can edit
        • Updated as needed
        • Used for collaboration on a single project
        • Made of up of linked pages
        • Little or no structure
        • Sometimes allows for comments
        • Updates delivered via RSS
    • RSS
      • Short for “Real Simple Syndication”
      • Originally used to syndicate content from another web site on your own
      • Now most commonly used to deliver web related updates
      • Makes it easy to keep up with content from news sites, blogs, wikis, and web sites without visiting them every day
      • Requires an RSS Aggregator to use
    • RSS Aggregators
      • Also known as RSS Readers
      • Consider this your inbox for web content
      • Come in online and desktop varieties
        • Online readers allow you to access your subscriptions from any computer
        • Desktop readers are only accessible from your computer
      • Most popular reader is Bloglines
    • Finding Blogs
