Having the opportunity to explore the Web 2.0 technologies on our own is a bit dangerous. I have to say it was easy to get lost in exploring these various options. I'm happy to say I'm doing this at home so I'm not wasting any work time. ; ]
I took a look at both of the Web 2.0 Awards and the Webware 100 to find a possible topic to explore. I played with both sites and found a number of interesting possibilities.
-Thinkmap Visual Thesaurus: What a great way to develop new search terms and exlore the language. All in a familiar word cloud format. Not to mention how versatile it is. And it is just a plain good thesaurus. Too bad you have to login to use it.
Wufoo: We are often looking for ways to survey colleagues at branch level, at the system level and on various committees. Very cool.
