I would love to hear about peoples' experiences and tips for using sites like Diigo and Connotea.
They seem to me a very valuable way of cataloguing and archiving the internet information deluge.
I have only just started experimenting with them, but I feel I am nowhere near exploiting their potential.
How participatory do you find the experience of being in a Diigo group for example - or is it the case that it is as particpatory as you make it/wish it to be?
With regards to participation, I posted a reply to Connectiv http://connectiv.wordpress.com/ about his post http://connectiv.wordpress.com/2011/02/25/blog-about-blogpost-and-add-a-url-started-as-a-comment-on-fb-cck11/ and some of the FB comments regarding blogs as just a way of shouting into the echochamber.
To sum up, I guess it's up to the participants how participatory they want to be on one another's blogs.
Personally I appreciate having a bit of time and space for reflection before posting answers. Conversations can be asynchronous.
