Keeping Track: Web 2.0 makes it simple, doesn’t it?

Bookmarks, bookmarks, bookmarks!

I’m a big fan of Web 2.0. The endless possibilities of all the new toys – blogs, podcasts, video, rss, etc., etc., – available to us fascinate me. The democratic nature of the ‘people power’ nature of Web 2.0 appeals to me. There are enormous possibilities for business too, though I don’t think they’ve been tapped yet.

But I have one concern: I can’t keep up. Seems like every day I stumble across yet another tool. If it isn’t a blog tracking tool like Technorati,  it’s a blog comment tracking tool like coComment. If it’s not a bookmarking tool like Digg, it’s a bookmarking tool for bookmarking like Add This. The image in this post  shows just how far things have come. Each tool seems to be unique in its own way. It all gets a bit confusing and hard to sort through!

Do you use any of these tools and, if so, which ones do you find particularly useful?

I use del.icio.us and I’ve gotten pretty addicted to it. I check the homepage 4 times a day almost. I really want to try some other social bookmarking sites (I check digg now n then) but I havent really seen one that catches my eye yet.

I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
