First Monday on WebWise 2.0: The Power of Community

Last March I was lucky enought to go to, and give a talk at, the 2008 WebWise Conference on Libraries and Museums in the Digital World in sunny Miami Beach, Florida. Speakers from the conference were asked to write up their talks for a special edition of First Monday, which is now out. If you want to get a sense of how Web 2.0 is starting to affect libraries, museums, and scholars, it’s worth reading. My contribution, “Creating Scholarly Tools and Resources for the Digital Ecosystem: Building Connections in the Zotero Project,” focuses on the importance of the unglamorous but critical work of connecting digital tools and repositories together via APIs, standards, and openness.
