Next stop: Vancouver

This week I will be one of the many people visiting the 5th Sakai Conference. So keep your eyes on the other weblog, where short reviews will appear (if all goes well).

Google jockey

Stephen's Web ~ by Stephen Downes ~: "This is a neat idea I hadn't run across before. 'A Google jockey is a participant in a presentation or class who surfs the Internet for terms, ideas, Web sites, or resources mentioned by the presenter or related to the topic."
Stephen points to a great resource on the Educause website (they have more!). I would like to call this Web 2.0 in the classroom or something.

Web 2.1 is here ?!?!

If you want to have a laugh (sort of) on what Web 2.0 could become, some sort of overhyped phenomenon, then read This is not your older brother's Interweb!: "What the hell is Web 2.1 RC 1 ?" Very funny post, great to read when you are doing your Friday afternoon boring stuff to close the week...

Web 2.0 Awards: again!

I guess that Web 2.0 awards are awarded as much as there are pragmatists that are jumping on the bandwagon of "Web 2.0". Anyway, i just found another roundup of awards for the newest and the coolest services to be found on the web.
There are some surprises (at least for me): e.g. Hipcal for the "Personal Organization" (and 30Boxes not even in the top3) category or Stumbleupon for "Social tagging" (and del.icio.us only rated 3rd). Check it all out at SEOmoz's Web 2.0 Awards.
