While WeRelate is very genealogy-specific, there are other platforms useful to family research. Platforms like Diigo, Flickr, Google Maps and Yahoo! Groups provide value as standalone systems, but even more value as part of a [very Web 2.0] mashup.
To me, the greatest impact of “Web 2.0″ to my research is the ability to use any of these tools to support MY research in a way that works for me while at the same time contributing to the knowledge pool for the entire community so that others can also use the information – in a way that works for them.]]>
