One of the things that web2.0 has left us with is more places to dump everything that we make or find. There are a number of services that have started up to help mitigate this. Social Networking sites seem to be the high flyers here, but what about the great host of other aggregators out there? To the list below, we add Second Brain. It offers to suck your content from a number of locations, but only from the hosted versions (so it won’t suck in this blog, even though there is a WordPress connection. But it works with things like Delicious and Flickr quite well.
So if you are looking at Web2.0 as an alternative to the CMS that your institution provides, these sites might be your solution. Allowing you to host content in an open manner, but not running into the stigma that surrounds social networking.
I found a related post via OLDaily on this topic yesterday as well.
