WebQubed: Web 2.0 Mixed and Mashed

Colleagues/

While I believe that many Web 2.0 developments are quite Innovative, I sense that the integration of Web 2.0 technologies are/is not as Radical as they could be …

For Example:

Are There Current Web 2.0 Mashups / Services / Sites / Etc. That Allow A User To:

>Add a relevant audio / photo / video / etc. TO a PDF / Word / TXT / document ?

>>Add a tag to relevant audio / photo / text / video / etc. that is linked to a relevant audio / photo / text / video / etc.

>>> Add a linked-tag to national catalog record (via Open WordCat[?])? To a local OPAC record ( A PennTags & Plus) ?

The Question(s)
Of The Day is:

To What Degree Has The Wide Variety Of Media Been Integrated Into Other Media ? / To What Degree Has Such Media Been Mixed And Mashed To Create A New Medium ?

>>And Most Importantly<<

How Might Libraries Benefit From Such Integration?

BTW: I have created a Global Facebook Group that is “devoted to consideration and discussion of any and all (Im)Possible / (Im)Probable intergrations of Any and All Web 2.0 technologies” which is available at

BTW: I Am Aware of All Things Web 2.0

Scotland's Information at http://www.scotlandsinformation.com/ uses the Google API to mash a collection level description dataset of libraries, museums and archives in Scotland with a Google map interface. We also use a tag cloud interface for collection subjects from DDC and LCSH.
