(re-) mix the web
The whole notion of Web 2.0 can get a bit contentious, and some applications under this banner don’t exactly do the social networking and collaboration that are the defining features - but they can make it easier to organize that kind of activity. So for example, take a look at netvibes, it’s so easy and so useful – it’s a free-of-charge web portal. You can add your own feeds, manage multiple email accounts, store bookmarks, search for images, video, blogs...and customize it at will with simple editing tools and a drag-and-drop page layout. All that makes Web 2.0-type activity a whole lot simpler. In the designers’ own words you “(re-)mix the web” – don’t you just love the bracketed prefix!
