"When Web 2.0 came and passed, so to speak, it did so without any clear definition." It''s not gone yet. Otherwise a great article.

If we''re not connecting with our members the way THEY want to be connected with they will connect with someone else.

This is very timely - nicely augments the Callahan Webinar ''Blogging Basics: A new way to approach the Member Experience" March 14, 2007. That webinar was very educational in leading credit unions in the discovery process of new, even non-traditional ways to appeal to members and non members in a blogging environment. A few years ago the word cocooning defined the way people preferred to hybernate ''after work'' hours. Blogging allows us all to stay home, but develop relationships, build businesses, create dialog in a safe and trusted environment.

I very much agree Joe. There has been a lot of talk about the role and opportunity for credit unions in social media (including blogs and other online community sites). To do this effectively we first need to be willing to surrender some contol over the channel and watch what happens...otherwise it will still mostly just be a one-way newsletter to our audiences-- no matter what we try to call it. A far cry from an online community.

Tim O''Reilly''s take is that Web 2.0 isn''t dead yet, either. Wesabe gets a mention as an example (btw Wesabe is keen on working with credit unions) http://graemethickins.typepad.com/graeme_blogs_here/2007/03/tim_oreilly_say.html

I agree Trey, the Web 2.0 is certainly not dead. It is continuing to morph, finding purpose, and evolving into the next phase of its development. Nothing in this game is static. Like Joe''s article, this referenced link speaks to the evolving nature of everything 2.0 (http://earlystagevc.typepad.com/earlystagevc/2007/03/web_20.html)
