#13 Tagging, folksomonies & social bookmarking in Del.icio.us
Del.icio.us – http://del.icio.us/dcrob
Thoughts: Even though I use Del.icio.us quite a bit for my social bookmarking and exploration, I also rely a fair bit on my browser bookmarks for my day-to-day work patterns. The combination of the ‘del.icio.us’ and ‘Bookmark Sync and Sort’ Add-ons for Firefox complete the picture for my needs.

#15 On Library 2.0 & Web 2.0 …
Library 2.0 is a loosely defined model for a modernized form of library service that reflects a transition within the library world in the way that services are delivered to users. The concept of Library 2.0 borrows from that of Business 2.0 and Web 2.0 and follows some of the same underlying philosophies. This includes online services such as the use of OPAC systems and an increased flow of information from the user back to the library.
With Library 2.0 library services are constantly updated and reevaluated to best serve library users. Library 2.0 also attempts to harness the library user in the design and implementation of library services by encouraging feedback and participation. Proponents of this concept expect that ultimately the Library 2.0 model for service will replace traditional, one-directional service offerings that have characterized libraries for centuries. — Wikipedia
service2.0 – more user focussed, a meme from the Web2.0 naming
virtual and physical space
expect access to everything, all the time
remove barriers to access, if a services can’t be used without training, then it’s the services that need to be fixed
removing the “come to us” model of service
not technology for the sake of technology
