Web 2.0: what it is and why it matters

Event Info

Wed 10 Sep, 2008 from 9:30am - 4:15pm
Natural History Museum
Cromwell Road
London, SW7 5BD, UK



Attending this event will help you get up to speed on what is going on, learn what others are doing, and kick start your thinking about how your authority could take advantage of web 2.0 developments.

Any self-respecting 10-year-old can tell you what widgets, mash-ups, tag clouds, and UGC are. What they can’t tell you is why these and other ‘web 2.0’ developments have any relevance to the day to day work of public sector managers. So, if you have a suspicion that some of what’s going on in Facebook, Second Life, YouTube, LinkedIn and the rest might just be relevant to your work, don’t rely on your kids – come along to this event. And if you don’t have any idea why Web 2.0 could be relevant to you, then you really do need to come along.

Widgets, mash-ups, tag clouds and user-generated content: all you ever wanted to know about Web 2.0, but were afraid to ask. A one-day seminar at the Natural History Museum London launching our latest report. Every delegate will receive a CD-ROM with a copy of the report and hyperlinks to extensive web resources.
