What is interesting about Social Software, blogs, wikis, rss and the like is NOT the technology; it is the people. The tech is secondary to finding ways to get the tech out of the way of the users. To give voice.
A couple of notes on the continuing evolution of social software:
- Manila appears to be a hybrid group blog
- Vanilla is blogs and wikis combined
- Research? – Dana convinced the JCMC to run a special issue on Social Networking Sites.
