Interesting program on the BBC World Service last night about the use of Web 2.0 in everyday life. Among discussions of whether social networking is beginning to define us as individuals, there was a really interesting point about how social networking sites are beginning to be the central point around which we live our lives, rather than being an interesting added extra.
Jaron Lanier was critical of the use of social networking sites for commercial advertising, but didn't really discuss its use for making public services more accessible to users who were "born digital".
It's worth a listen: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/console/p005zyp8
