What is web 2 0 l.jpg

What is Web 2.0 ?

  • A concept not a product

  • A way of thinking

  • A way of working – collaborative, social

  • About sharing information with others

  • About information coming to you

  • About you deciding how you receive and view the information

  • All sorts of technologies but….

  • ..don’t use it just because it is labelled Web 2.0

  • If it does not help you work more effectively and efficiently, then ditch it!

  • Examples:

    • blogs, RSS, wikis, social bookmarking (e.g. Furl, Del.icio.us, Connotea) Flickr, Facebook, MySpace, web based forums, email discussion lists, YouTube, Second Life……

Blogs l.jpg

Blogs

  • What is a blog?

    • short for web log

    • content management system that publishes information chronologically

    • content can range from self-indulgent drivel to extreme erudition

    • easy to use and publish from anywhere, therefore there is a high proportion of utter rubbish in the ‘blogosphere’

    • blogs automatically generate RSS feeds

      “Vodcasts and blogs are to the noughties what graffiti was to the Seventies: mindless scrawls reading: 'I woz ere.' It says: 'I'm a moron, but worship me anyway.”

      The Observer, 3rd December 2006

Karen Blakeman www.rba.co.uk


Blog host or own server l.jpg

Blog host or own server?

Blog Host

Own Server

Should be able to customise the look and feel, and interface of the blog but depends on the software

Can integrate the blog fully with your web site

Can include the blog in your site search option

Easy access to user stats

Can easily keep the blog private or for selected users

But the content may still have to go through the usual authorisation channels

  • May not be allowed on your organisation’s server

  • Keeping it private may not be straightforward

  • consider confidentiality

  • Not possible to fully customise the blog in line with the ‘corporate image’

  • User stats not always easily available

  • Can post from any Internet connected computer without having to worry about firewalls

  • Could lose your information if the services closes or fails

  • Have focussed content and find “your voice” – set up more than one blog if necessary

Karen Blakeman www.rba.co.uk


Comments l.jpg

    • use a ‘captcha’ - completely automated public Turing test to tell computers and humans apart

    • moderate all comments
