Web 2.0 Tools

This page is a collection of Web 2.0 tools . . . what is Web 2.0? Here’s a definition from Wikipedia (itself a Web 2.0 tool): “Web 2.0 is a trend in the use of World Wide Web technology and web design that aims to facilitate creativity, information sharing, and, most notably, collaboration among users.” Want to know more? Here are nice explanations of Web 2.0 tools like Twitter and social networking from Common Craft.

One nice feature of Web 2.0 is that you may access resources from wherever you are. You don’t need to be at a specific machine to do your work . . . you may work anywhere. And you may collaborate with people from around the world.
