It seems to be a Techie's dream toy. IM, Texting, and emails about what you are doing right now. Build a list of friends and you have instant contact. Too cool!

This journey has been an awakening, a blossoming, and an unfolding of technology and creativity. We hold the entire world of information and it is right here in our collective hands as libraries, librarians, and all staff . I will not ever stop my quest for more knowledge and the tools to reach that knowledge, then convey it to others. It is my life long goal and along the way will always remember to laugh and love what I do..

What can I say? As my youngest son says "If Craigslist doesn't have it, there must not be any on the web." It's a buy, sell, negotiate for anything and everything site.
Cocktail Builder was used by my son and his friends for a Memorial Day Party to see what they would need to get to add to the liquor they had on hand for favorite mixed drinks.
Great site to create, blend, match, and save and send those colors. Wow!
Amorphous. Intangible. Indefinable with a simple sentence. Luckily, this year, one of the creators of the term, Tim O'Reilly, attempted to do just that:
Web 2.0 is the network as platform, spanning all connected devices; Web 2.0 applications are those that make the most of the intrinsic advantages of that platform: delivering software as a continually-updated service that gets better the more people use it, consuming and remixing data from multiple sources, including individual users, while providing their own data and services in a form that allows remixing by others, creating network effects through an "architecture of participation," and going beyond the page metaphor of Web 1.0 to deliver rich user experiences.
Some libraries use their wiki to keep a constantly updating list of books, media, and programs in house and public: and as a professional tool to keep records of data for training and classes.
