Book deal and new ZDNet blog

A couple of weeks ago I began my new life as a full-time freelance Web Analyst and Writer.

One of the things I’ll be doing is co-writing a book for O’Reilly Media on the topic of Web 2.0. I started writing it this week.

I’ve also just started a ZDNet blog, called Web 2.0 Explorer. There are two posts up there already, including one I wrote tonight entitled What is Web 2.0.

With all this Web 2.0 writing I’m doing, you may be wondering what’s going to happen to Read/Write Web? Don’t worry, my focus here on R/WW will remain on Web 2.0. Indeed I will be doing more detailed analysis and theory posts on the topic. There’ll be more deep thinking and I’ll be blogging ideas that I plan to cover in the book. I’ve been impressed by Chris Anderson’s ability to develop ideas and gather feedback from the blogosphere about The Long Tail for his book, so I’m hoping to do something similar here.

Oh and I have some exciting new features to try out on Read/Write Web. Stay tuned 😉

So, over the coming months I’ll be drilling down into Web 2.0 on R/WW, in a book, and on my new ZDNet blog. The next step is probably to get a Web 2.0 tattoo.
