Web 2.0 Wednesday Task for 18 June

Our first task for Web 2.0 Wednesday was come up with a one-minute presentation for any of the following:

  • Show someone how to use a Web 2.0 technology
  • Explains a Web 2.0 technology and how it works
  • Persuades people to use your favorite Web 2.0 technology

Now if you’re thinking I’m late completing this task (6 days) — think again! This wise one learned that “Slow and Steady Wins The Race!” by reflecting on how others complete the same task. So far we have:

My 1 Min Presentation on Web 2.0

The most important aspects I would want to show anyone about Web 2.0 is:

  1. The sharing, collaborating and power of networks
  2. How you can harness Web 2.0 technologies to achieve greater innovation

So I sent the following request for help out to my twitter network to try demonstrate this in action:

My network recommended the following for a 1min presentation:

I think we would all agree that collectively my network was considerably more innovative than what I could have achieved as an individual; thus demonstrating the true power of Web 2.0. Hope you join us for Web 2.0 Wednesday!
