Web 2.0

Tonight I am thinking, again, about the impact of web 2.0 on the democratization of information.  To think that this simple tool helps break down information barriers on a massive level is inspiring.   I hope that we, librarians, continue to embrace the radical trust necessary to encourage the people to control the creation, organization, preservation and dissemination of information.  Yes, we have a role to play, but it really is their information!

I only wish that more 2.0topians would discuss the democratizing effect of web 2.0 on information.  Every persons’ voice has it’s place.
