Need to Merge Back onto the Information Superhighway?

Today’s post on the SmallBizBigTime blog, “Attention Small Biz – Get Ready for New Technology & Social Media Tools“, was particularly timely. Just last night, I commented (to my wife on Sofa 1.0) on how sad a blog with one post, months old, was. It tells a lonely story: someone went to a conference session or read an economic development expert’s column or book, was seduced by the rewards of Web 2.0, signed up, logged on, wrote an introductory blog post promising insightful prose promptly posted…. then nothing but a sad withered reminder of Web 2… oh, well, so sad! So, if your business or economic development organization needs back on track for Web 2.0, or to prepare for (cue foreboding music) Web 3.0, stay tuned for more helpful information such as the above.
