Blogoposium I: Web 2.0

26 Sep

Ken over at Technosight will be hosting the inaug, inagru first ever Blogoposium this Wednesday and will be discussing a subject I blogged about fairly recently: the phenomenon of Web 2.0. Ken mailed me saying:

I think you could really add something to the conversation, especially because you are not necessarily drinking the ‘cool-aid’ of Web 2.0 (which is one question I am asking people to address).

Well, I’m as open to flattery and delusions of being a maverick as anyone else so I thought – ‘hey, I’m a designer (big ego) _and_ I’m a blogger (also big ego) therefore I must really _really_ believe what I say is worth listening to – so, what the hell.’

So I mailed Ken back saying I’d love to be involved. The idea reminds me a little bit of the various blog carnivals that my good friend Orac runs/hosts/gets involved in and I think its an attempt to utilise the power of blogs in a coordinated and semantic manner – which is always a good thing.

Ken is looking for lots of involvement on this and as I think its a great idea (and lets face it, the design/development blogosphere talks about these things in a meme-like fashion anyway so it may as well be formalised and organised) I also think it would be a good idea for lots of people to get involved.

Ken has a few incentives to offer to the first 30 people to trackback on the day itself (Wed 28th Sept – thats this Wed fact fans):

The first 30 trackbacks will receive a complimentary copy of the advanced uncorrected proof of Seth Godin’s The Big Moo (the book doesn’t come out till October).

which is jolly decent of him.

Now, a lot of the design/dev bloggers _I_ know are as egotistical and opinionated as I am – so ladies and gentlemen – have at it.
