Bentley CS 299

I spent some time this afternoon with Mark Frydenberg‘s class at Bentley University: CS 299 Web 2.0 – Technology, Strategy, and Community.

I talked about my perspective on Web 2.0, trying to show how 2.0 tools can be used to help you organize the information you need to do your job better and develop yourself professionally. My take on web 2.0 tools is that they are great for personal knowledge management.

Web 2.0 has some obvious uses for marketing. But that’s like saying you watch television for the ads.

My slide deck is embedded below.

I used Google Docs to create the presentation. It falls far short of PowerPoint for the way I create my presentations. On the positive side, I could access the slide deck from any computer and make an edit when I had an idea.
