Sixteen Ways for Thinking Web 2.0

Dion Hinchcliffe writes: So, in this vein, I took my own studies of Web 2.0 as well as many raw inputs as I could find and came up with a roughly structured list of how to “think” in terms of Web 2.0 ideas. Let me know what you think and as always add your own in the comments below. Let’s create a really terrific guide for those who are just discovering this fascinating and useful study of the next generation of online software.

The list and his points are incredible and can be most useful for guiding libraries into Web 2.0 thinking as well as jumpstarting Library 2.0 discussions that I urge librarians to have.

Here are some of my favorites:

Be prepared to share everything with enthusiasm.

The Web is the platform; make it grow.

Identity on the Web is sacrosanct.

User-driven organization and filtering are not just nice to have.

Embrace and enable rapid change and feedback.
