Why Web 2.0 - slides and links

So my presentation on the Opportunities and Challenges for using Web 2.0 was yesterday. It seemed to go well, only time will tell. Anyway if you weren't there and wanted to have a look at my slides, here they are. I have also included a list of all the sites referred to at the end of this post.

The most interesting part of any presentation is of course the questions and there were some quite interesting ones last night:

  • Are other firms experiencing issues with Firewalls?
  • Have you any suggestions for dealing with IT Departments, who don't allow access to these technologies?
  • What RSS feeds are Law Publishers providing for their content?
  • If you had a blank piece of paper, what technology would you implement?
  • How can you leverage knowledge from Social Bookmarking tools?

For a full list of the sites shown click on this link

    Looks like a good presentation - particularly like the section on "challenges for you" ... and, of course, your invocation not to go 2.0 just cause it's cool ...

    Thanks Anne, it seemed to be at the right level. I probably could have spent a bit more time talking about some of the challenges for the sector, but there is only so much you can do in 45 minutes. Which reminds me that I have submitted a paper to ILI around this very subject! Scary stuff!

    Some great content, James. I'm wondering if I might be allowed to share the slides on my blog as well? I couldn't see that you had made them available under Creative Commons on Slideshare, but that could just be an oversight.
