Web is Social

First Monday has a special issue on web 2.0. An interesting collection of articles from both sides of web 2.0 debate.

Michael Zimmer writes in the introductory article, "But Web 2.0 also embodies a set of unintended consequences, including the increased flow of personal information across networks, the diffusion of one’s identity across fractured spaces, the emergence of powerful tools for peer surveillance, the exploitation of free labor for commercial gain, and the fear of increased corporatization of online social and collaborative spaces and outputs."

I am reading the essays in the issue (Just reproducing the contents below)
