Are you 2.0?

Here is some news about the continued growth of web 2.0. Now companies and executives are adopting these tools and connecting them to their business practices. So much to learn, so little time! I don’t know how you feel when you read an article like the one I have attached, but it sometimes is overwhelming to think about the speed of technology. The good news is that preteens, teenagers, and young adults are working with new technology all the time and working out all the bugs so that us business types can use these tools when they are improved!

Here are some of the questions I am wrestling with on a weekly basis:

• How will publishers handle the challenges of constant change in the world of technology?

• Will we be ready to use these new tools as part of the processes of a publishing enterprise?

• How well does my organization understand the challenges and opportunities associated with these new tech tools?

I have attached a video that explains the basics of web 2.0–it’s time to learn!

The video did clarify the 2.0 issue, though I don’t pretend to understand it all!

As a teacher and a writer, I am learning how to navigate social networks for both information and marketing. Once cynical about Twitter, I am now using it as a way to access information about aspects of teaching, writing, publishing, publishers, and any other interests, It provides a way for me to consolidate all the areas of my life by following people, companies, news sources, and any other resource that is valuable to me.
