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?
