Colleagues/

 

While I believe that many Web 2.0 developments are Quite Innovative, I
sense that the integration of Web 2.0 technologies are Not As Radical as
they could be ...

 

For Example:

 

***Are There Current Web 2.0 Mashups / Services / Sites / Etc. That
Allow A User To:***

 

>Add a relevant audio / photo / video / etc. TO a private/public PDF /
Word / TXT / document ?

 

>>Add a tag to relevant audio / photo / text / video / etc. that is
**Linked** to a relevant private/public audio /photo / text / video /
etc. 

 

>>> Add a linked-tag (for audio / photo / text / video /etc. ) to
national catalog record (via Open WordCat)? To a local OPAC record ( A
PennTags & Plus)?

 

The Question Of The Day is: 

To What Degree Has The Wide Variety Of Media Been Integrated Into Other
Media ?? / To What Degree Has Such Media Been Mixed And Mashed To Create
A New Medium ?

 

How Might Libraries Benefit From Such Integration?

 

BTW: I have created a Global Facebook Group that is  "devoted to
consideration and discussion of any and all (Im)Possible / (Im)Probable
intergrations of Any and All Web 2.0 technologies" which is available is
linked form

BTW: I am aware  of All Things Web 2.0
