Blogs, Wikis, MySpace, and More
Blogs, Wikis, MySpace, and More: Everything you want to know about using 2.0 but were afraid to ask. (Burrows, Terry)
Burrows gives an excellent beginners guide to the World Wide Web. The book is separated by these subject areas: Blogging, Bookmarks and Tagging, Communications, Design, e-commerce, Education and Knowledge, Games and Virtual Worlds, Hosting, Mapping, Music, News, Peer-to-Peer Sharing, Personal Management Tools, and Photographs and Videos. Each chapter gives a brief history of the topic, detailed instructions on how to use site features, and a listing of additional websites.
However some of the sites in the Education and Knowledge section were not reference related and were mostly brainstorming sites. And some of the sites were obsolete like Findroy.com. I would have liked to see more useful websites like the Internet Library, Bartleby.com, or Census bureau listed in the reference section.
