4) Morning Coffee with Craig: What is Globalisation?

Today I give a very brief overview of that monumental term ‘globalisation’. As you probably know, there are protests against a certain type of globalisation (neo-liberalism) being planned in Melbourne for the meeting of the G20 group.

Also, here is a site that I made way back in August, 2000 about globalisation. There are some good articles on it, although the newspaper artciles are no longer available (broken links and excuse the nasty advertising that comes with these free hosts).

2) Morning Coffee with Craig: What is Web 2.0?

Web2.0 (key components)

  • Comes out of the Blog Community or CMS
  • RSS Feeds
  • Folksonomies (visualisation of data)
  • User-generated media (social software)
  • Filtering (Too much media)
  • Ajax (programming technique)
  • Real Time Web (visualisation of data).

What books am I reading?

This is one of my first attempts of adding my own video to this blog (thanks to Youtube.com). And what better way to make a seque into a new medium than by having a book under my arm. See and hear what books I am reading at the moment; I suppose that it is better (and easier) than writing about them!
