Web 2.0 for designers links:


Links to Web 2.0 applications:

Web 2.0 Awards -- this link, via Marshall Kirkpatrick, includes over 300 web 2.0 sites in 38 categories, all rated and ranked.

Everything Web 2.0 was created by Bob Stumpel et al. which I found posted on Christian Mayaud's Sacred Cow Dung site (thanks to a tip from Sean Fitz Gerald). Although not completely comprehensive (how could anything on the web be?), the Everything Web 2.0 list contains literally hundreds of applications covering the following areas:

• audio • blogpod • blogging • bookmarking • browsers • calendars • chat • collaboration • collections • comics • communication • community • customer relations management • databases • design • dictionaries • ecommerce • economy • e-learning • email • filesharing • financials • fun • gambling • games • hosting • identity • images • imaging • jobs • knowledge sharing • lists • mapping • marketing • memos • multimedia • news outlets • officeware • operating systems • polling • portals • powerpoint • project management • rss • scheduling • searching • software • statistics • tagging • task management • text • text2speech • time management • video • voice mail • wikis • word processing • plus a whole lot more.

Ask the eConsultant offers a vast list of Web 2.0 applications and technical tips that many users may find helpful.

I Want To... by Phil Bradley offers a comparatively small collection of application links related to the "I want to do this" school of design.

The Tech Crunch Index is a list of web 2.0 companies and products that have been reviewed by Michael Arrington.

Keeping Up

Speaking of Michael, if you want to stay abreast of the wide world of web 2.0 applications, events, and business developments, I highly recommend visiting or subscribing to Tech Crunch right away.

I also recommend checking out the Web 2.0 Workgroup site. It offers a network of weblogs that write content about the new generation of the Web. Combined, these sites reach a large readership of influential technology and media professionals.

Web 2.0 Matrix

The authors of Programmable Web have put together a fascinating matrix of Web 2.0 Mashups.

Web 2.0 Video

A video that uses the Web 2.0 write up in Wikipedia. Aimed at helping teach educators about Web 2.0 tools.
