Free-range Thoughts

Marinating in the Mooc

clipped from www.bloglines.com


The social Web is not being built by augmenting traditional Web sites with new tools.
And a social library will not be created by implementing a list of social software
features on our current sites. The social Web is being created by opening the doors
to the production of the Web, dismantling the current structures and inviting users
in to create their content and establish new rules.

Open the library doors, invite mass participation by users and relax the rules of
privacy. It will be messy. The rules of the new social Web are messy. The rules of the
new social library will be equally messy. But mass participation and a little chaos
often create the most exciting venues for collaboration, creativity, community
building—and transformation. It is right on mission.
