Are We Ready for Web 2.0?

Marshall Breeding wrote a very thought-provoking article in the May 2006 issue of Computers in Libraries called "Web 2.0? Let's Get to Web 1.0 First." (Sorry -- this one isn't free online.) He makes some great points. Are we putting the cart before the horse? Have we finished Web 1.0? Have we even made good in-roads? A few of the things he mentions:
  • A professional, updated web site for each library
  • Valid HTML/XHTML
  • DOCTYPE within HTML
Excellent reading and a reminder that most of us have some Web 1.0 to finish up as we move toward Web 2.0.
