I discovered today a site called WriteTheWeb, which is “a community news site dedicated to encouraging the development of the read/write web”. Like me they believe the Read/Write Web “doesn’t just mean writing words, it means any time the web experience becomes two-way.” This is an important point, because a lot of people have no desire to publish writing on the web. I’m only interested in it because I enjoy reading and writing, and I love web technology – so writing to the web is the best of both worlds for me! But the Read/Write Web is also about interacting with websites and applications. It’s a two-way communication where information and transactions are personalized, or at least able to be customized.
