What Is Web 2.0 by Tim O'Reilly 09/30/2005 Oct. 2009: Tim O'Reilly and John Battelle answer the question of "What's next for Web 2.0?" in Web Squared: Web 2.0 Five Years On.

The Best Sites That Show Statistics By Reducing The World & The U.S. To 100 People Reducing statistics to “if _________ were 100 people, then __________” can make them very accessible, engaging, and thought-provoking. For example, there’s the well-known “If Twitter Was 100 People” infographic. There are also several sites that use “gimmick” to illustrate much more important data about the world around us. I thought they might make a useful “The Best…” list for English Language Learners and others. Here are my choices for The Best Sites That Show Statistics By Reducing The World & The U.S.

Web 2 Map: The Data Layer – Visualizing the Big Players in the Internet Economy As I wrote last month, I’m working with a team of folks to redesign the Web 2 Points of Control map along the lines of this year’s theme: “The Data Frame.” In the past few weeks I’ve been talking to scores of interesting people, including CEOs of data-driven start ups (TrialPay and Corda, for example), academics in the public dataspace, policy folks, and VCs. Along the way I’ve solidified my thinking about how best to visualize the “data layer” we’ll be adding to the map, and I wanted to bounce it off all of you. So here, in my best narrative voice, is what I’m thinking. First, of course, some data.

Best of the web: 19 sites you shouldn't be without Groundbreaking websites are all around us, and if you believed every company that positioned itself as the latest, greatest thing, you'd have an awful lot of bookmarks in your browser. Sites come and sites go, but it's rare that one makes enough of an impact on your life to revolutionise how you use the internet. But occasionally sites come along that offer a genuinely new way of finding, storing or curating stuff on the web. We've put together a list of 20 websites we think could let you use the internet in a way you haven't done before, save you time, make you money and let you enjoy yourself in the process.

21 Brilliant Productivity Tools Every College Student Must Use If you ask a college student about productivity, he won't have much to say. And you really can't blame him.

Rapid turnover in the Web 2.0 space – the best get acquired A review of what had happened to the Web 2.0 poster-children prompted me to review what had happened to the companies featured in my Web 2.0 Landscape dating from May 2007. This was one of the elements of our Web 2.0 Framework which has now been downloaded over 150,000 times.

The Best Teacher Resources For “Foldables” “Foldables” are basically 3 D graphic organizers. Graphic organizers are great tools to help English Language Learners (and all students) categorize content in a way to make it more accessible to them (you might also want to check-out Not “The Best,” But “A List” Of Mindmapping, Flow Chart Tools, & Graphic Organizers). I’ve found them particularly helpful in Social Studies classes, but they’re useful in all subjects. ”One-dimensional” graphic organizers are equally useful. Foldables, though, generally provide space for more content and are also good for a change-of-pace.
