Library 2.0

Having just spent four days with Jenny Levine and Michael Stephens, my brain is full of new ideas (or at least their ideas!). Gotta say that this Library 2.0 lingo is intriguing me.
Publish, published by Ziff Davis, had an article by Jason Boog – “Library 2.0 Movement Sees Benefits in Collaboration with Patrons,” features interviews with the cool trio – Jenny Levine, Aaron Schmidt, and Jessamyn West.
According to Boog, “These innovative librarians realize that some Web 2.0 technologies, such as blogs, wikis, and online databases like Google Print, are already competing for the attentions of library patrons…The librarians aim to build a participatory network of libraries using Web resources like blogs, wiki tools, and tags.”
Worth reading and thinking about. You might want to read up on Web 2.0 (that new – but imaginary – standard version that is a castle in sky – which is, of course, where all castles start!) These 2.zeroes seem to be Siamese twins.
