Directories for the Rest of Us: Mashable and Go2Web2.0

This librarian admits, there’s many Web 2.0 services, aggregators, portals, etc. that I have no clue about what their function is. It’s a steep learning curve. Below are two sites which may assist in clarifying how these individual tools of Web 2.0 technology connect everyone together.

Mashable: The Social Network Grid is a useful one-page directory for links to Bookmarks, Media Sharing, Community, RSS tools, News, Music and Blogging sites.

Go2Web2.0. Site administrators wrote: “Started in mid-2006, this directory of web 2.0 applications and services bears 1,527 logos as of 8/28/07. Thousands of visitors every day. Go2Web2.0 converges both Flash and AJAX technologies”.

JumpTags is an example of what’s linked from Go2Web2.0: “A revolutionary Web 2.0 social bookmarking web service for collecting, storing, sharing and distributing web bookmarks, notes, RSS feeds, contacts, and much more. Based on AJAX and other next generation web development techniques, Jumptags offers an easiest, fastest, intuitive and productive way of maintaining and collaborating bookmarks and other internet resources online”.
