Web 2.0 is a term used to describe user-generated or web-based services or applications. It fosters a sense of collaboration among users. While preparing for a workshop about Web 2.0, I came across a well laid out information blog called iLibrarian. Although the blogs audience is primarily librarians or information professionals, it is a very informative and helpful place to learn about Web 2.0 and the tools, websites, and add-ons to make anyone's life easier.
One thing of interest is the post about creating better presentations. "4 Ways to Spice Up Your Presentations." It offers links to good examples of engaging presentations, advice Websites, and even tools to add charts or "on the fly" generated images.
I also liked her 3 part entry "40 Useful Firefox Add-Ons for Librarians." Anyone who uses Firefox knows there is a lot of extensions you can use to customize the browser to fit your needs. I especially like the screengrab extension. This add-on allows you to take a screenshot of a webpage (or region of a page) and save it as an image. It is similar to SnagIt. For those who use Twitter, Meebo or Facebook, there is an add-on that integrates these applications with Firefox. So you can Tweet, have a sidebar view of your buddies, and have Facebook running all from within the same browser.
