Friday is Web 2.0 Day
By user13366078 on Mar 05, 2007
I really should blog more often.
Every day, at least every week, I have one or more blogging ideas in my head. But for some reason, there's always a lot of work to do and then it's too late and the next idea comes up, while the old one becomes stale.
And then there are those other things that scream "update me" at you: Flickr photos, a LinkedIn or XING.com profile or some other cool Web 2.0 service that you think would deserve some more of your time.
Lately, I've been giving Web 2.0 presentations to partners and customers and my feeling is that it's not a hype. We're in the middle of a major new breakthrough in how society, culture and the business world is organizing itself. Web 2.0 is becoming a serious part of our corporate life and everybody's daily day at work.
So, I need some way of better organizing my work life in order to accommodate the right amount of attention to my Web 2.0 life. That's why im now officially declaring Friday to be "Web 2.0 day".
Friday is a good day for work-related housekeeping items: Writing expense reports, updating notes, etc. So it is a perfect match to officially dedicate some time to updating my XING contacts, write blog entries, update internal wiki pages, write something into our group blog, try out new Web 2.0 services (current favourites include Plazes and FON) and generally do something to become a better Web 2.0 citizen. It is kinda like casual friday but with a more productive, more modern twist.
Last Friday, I wrote an article about Web 2.0 for a Sun internal technology newsletter. Today, I finished it, which is why you see this entry being created on Monday and not Friday, so it's working already :)
Who knows what'll happen next Friday? Stay tuned.
