Hello everybody! My name is Julianne and I am working on my senior thesis this semester. I chose Web 2.0 as my topic but I am having trouble finding a place to begin with my research. I began with a simple google search and came up with Tim O'Reilly and O'Reilly Media. I've also been looking at the writings of Cynthia Selfe, Gail Hawisher, and Danah Boyd. I'll also be looking at this Ning site to talk to other teachers about your use of Web 2.0 sites in the classroom and your thoughts on digital literacy. Right now, I'm just getting my feet wet but I know this will be a great experience. I've created a website www.jjthesisthoughts.weebly.com and I've started a blog. If anyone wants to check it out and give any feedback, I greatly appreciate it!

Despite that this is a thesis, "Web 2.0" is still WAY to big a topic. Narrow your search first. In what aspect of Web 2.0 are you interested? For ideas, look at Thomas Friedman's 10 Flatteners' and/or Curtis Bonk's 10 Openers. I highly recommend you read both books before delving into your research. Your review of the literature will be far easier if you have a great thesis question before you begin. Great Luck!!

Thomas Friedman;s book is entitled The World is Flat. There is a video presentation here. You should also read Don Tapscott and Net Generation.
