We are currently exploring different web 2.0 sites and their affordances. We are interested in finding out what encourages people to participate in these sites and which aspects of the functionality work, as well as the design and layout. Please feel free to add other links.

Just read from Twitter (via @courosa) about the social network (its developers call it 'social operating system). Tech Crunch reports that it reached 2 millions users. It works like Ning: I will have a look to compare them.

Mike Fisher has created a 'starter for 10' diagram showing how some of these web 2.0 tools might fit with Blooms (Cognitive) Taxonomy.
