January 17, 2009

I'm going to do something that's just not done. There's this unwritten rule in journalism that when you write, your goal in doing that writing is to be the authority, to ask the hard questions of those who are the experts or the ones with power, to then render these in a compelling story to you, gentle readers, while at the same time never extending beyond the bounds of the page - or in this case the screen - to, well you.

Expanding The O'Reilly Forums

By Kurt Cagle
December 13, 2008

Forums have become an integral part of many communities over the years - as a webmaster on a number of different social sites, I found that the sites tended to live or die on the strength of their forums more than on any other component of the site. They provide a way for people to express their feelings, to communicate with one another, to explore deep concepts (and silly ones) and to learn, and as such they often form the vibrant backbone of communities regardless of the subject matter expressed.

Work on Stuff That Matters--Tim O'Reilly @ Web 2.0
By Sara Peyton
September 18, 2008

Tim O'Reilly, founder of O'Reilly Media, didn't mince words as he addressed the crowd this morning at Web 2.0 Expo in New York City. As CNET reported today, he said: "You have to conclude, if you look at the focus of a lot of what you call 'Web 2.0,' the relentless focus on advertising-based consumer models, lightweight applications, we may be living in somewhat of a bubble, and I'm not talking about an investment bubble. (It's) a reality bubble." Indeed, in the wake of Wall Street's tumble and anxiety all around, Tim is asking people to think about what they would do differently and to "work on stuff that matters."
