Phil Bradley’s 30 Web 2.0 applications

Phil Bradley has loaded his 30 Web 2.0 applications presentation on authorSTREAM. The applications that he has chosen for his Top 30 are worth investigating if you are not already aware of them, and so is authorSTREAM itself. It is similar to Slideshare, in that it allows you to upload and share presentations, but you can also provide an accompanying commentary as Phil has in this case.

Library Pageflakes start pages

Two examples of Libraries using Pageflakes as a “start page”. (Thanks to Phil Bradley for highlighting both of these in his blog).

The first is Dublin City Public Libraries and Archive. It is not so much a start page as several start pages. I counted seven tabs so it is almost a mini web site! As a regular visitor to Dublin I love the traffic and travel tab where they have Dublin web cams, traffic updated and local travel news. A superb example of how far you can push this technology.

The second is Llyfrgell Ceredigion Library in Aberystwyth, Wales. Again, another good example of concentrating on providing local information.
