Most useless web 2.0 tool -

  • Deb - http://www.elfyourself.com
  • Sometimes tools that seem a bit "useless" on their own can be made far more useful thanks to the Embed code that lets them be combined with other things. For example, Slideshare's usefulness is increased by the fact that it can be embedded into a blog or a wiki.  Twitter or Delicious combined with RSS makes it more powerful.  Embedding YouTube videos, etc and being able to pull resources all into whatever place makes sense adds great value to tools.

Any other online tool that is worthy of a mention .....

Darren - Wordle - word clouds http://www.wordle.net/ & Visual thesarus http://www.visualthesaurus.com/

What will web 3.0 be.............

Chris - The Semantic Web, where the tags and metadata of the web's resources start to become self organising, so that the information out there is self-aware
