Second generation of the Web

Collaboration, interaction, customization

Wikipedia takes on the challenge of trying to define and explain Web 2.0

“ Web 2.0 doesn't have a hard boundary, but rather, a gravitational core”

Blogs, podcasts and Web 2.0 tools Web 2.0 websites are different from those of early web development, retroactively labeled Web 1.0. They are designed to deliver interactive, versus static, applications to end-users. Their content is characterised by open communication, decentralised authority, and freedom to share and re-use materials across a more dynamic, interlinked and interactive World Wide Web. They are often referred to as 'read/write web' applications.

Blogs, podcasts and Web 2.0 tools Blogs (web logs), podcasts, and wikis constitute a sub-set of what are commonly described as Web 2.0 or social networking tools. They increasingly provide international online communication and collaboration among nurses and health informaticians. Many applications are available as libre/free and open source software and will run on all operating systems – eg GNU/Linux, Mac OS ... (and Windoze if you must).

Blogs, podcasts and Web 2.0 tools Blogs – some basics A blog (or weblog) is a website in which messages are posted and displayed with the newest at the top ... blogs often focus on a particular subject ... Some blogs function as online diaries. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, web pages, and other media related to its topic. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blog

Blogs, podcasts and Web 2.0 tools Blogs – structure (1/4) A blog is usually edited, organised and published using a Content Management System (CMS) ... many of are built with Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP (LAMP) architecture. Blogger (www.blogger.com) - owned by Google WordPress (www.wordpress.com) - FLOSS Serendipity (s9y.org ) - FLOSS

Blogs, podcasts and Web 2.0 tools Blogs – structure (2/4) A blog entry typically consists of: Title - main title, or headline, of the post. Body - main content of the post. Comments - comments added by readers Permalink - the URL of the full, individual article. Post Date - date and time the post was published.

Post Date - date and time the post was published.

Blogs, podcasts and Web 2.0 tools Blogs – structure (3/4) A blog entry optionally includes the following: Categories (or tags) - subjects that the entry discusses Trackback - links to other sites that refer to the entry A blog site typically contains a list of links, or blogroll, of other blogs that the blog author reads or affiliates with.

Blogs, podcasts and Web 2.0 tools Why do we want to provide blogs for virtual conference participation? - not everyone can get to conferences - what goes on at such events may not be shared with others - so much good learning may be 'lost' to most colleagues – or those most in need of it

Blogs, podcasts and Web 2.0 tools Conferences provide an opportunity for both formal and informal professional development, social networking, and collaborative knowledge development. Web 2.0 tools, many of which are also often described as social networking software, afford connection and collaboration among individuals who wish to affiliate with one another.

Blogs, podcasts and Web 2.0 tools Why do we want to provide blogs for virtual conference participation? - to provide virtual interaction for those unable to attend - to promote the event - to play with (explore) the technology - to explore/research a collaborative model of blogging

Blogs, podcasts and Web 2.0 tools Blogs for virtual conference participation Some examples (either dedicated blogs or via Informaticopia): Medinfo2004 (San Francisco) SINI2005, SINI2006 (Baltimore) MIE2005 (Geneva); MIE2006 (Maastricht) HC2005, HC2006 (Harrogate) EFMI STC2006 (Timisoara) NI2006 (Seoul) Rutgers2006 (Toronto) AMIA 2005, 2006 (Washington DC)

Blogs, podcasts and Web 2.0 tools Blogs, interaction and participation – some evaluation data Generally felt to be a useful adjunct to events Most felt was easy to use Should be available post-event (archive) '... personal ancedotes give a sense of voyeurism. ..being there without actually being physically there.' 'I like the first person 'conversation' style - as though speaking directly to me. Informal, easy to follow and relate to. If I disagreed or had comments, I knew I could add the blog to benefit other readers.'

Most felt was easy to use

Should be available post-event (archive)

'... personal ancedotes give a sense of voyeurism.

..being there without actually being physically there.'

'I like the first person 'conversation' style - as though

speaking directly to me. Informal, easy to follow and

relate to. If I disagreed or had comments, I knew I

could add the blog to benefit other readers.'

Blogs, podcasts and Web 2.0 tools Blogs, interaction and participation – some lessons learned Must be as easy as possible to access and participate - eg wireless – or people won't post during the event Reminders boost readership RSS feeds to email/browser

Blogs, podcasts and Web 2.0 tools Blogs, interaction and participation – is it worth the effort? - where next? We currently do new clean install for each blog - to try out new tools – but labour-intensive May look at one site for multiple events – but possible confusion here We believe it is worth it, and valuable to those who do use it - but need to boost both readership and interaction

Blogs, podcasts and Web 2.0 tools Wikis and related beasts

Blogs, podcasts and Web 2.0 tools Wikis - are dynamic, group-developed web pages that can be easily created and accessed via a browser - the content may be updated or changed by anyone visiting the website. - Wikis allow for asynchronous group socialisation, communication and collaboration and a tool for archiving documents, brainstorming, and collaborative writing. Wikipedia (www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page), Wikinews (www.wikinews.org/wiki/Health).
