Somber Tuesday

Today 10linksaday will be absent as we remember those that lost their lives 6 years ago. Our prayers are with those families who lost loved ones and all of the other heroes who are fighting the illnesses that came about as a result of the horrible acts on 9/11/01. Special thoughts and prayers go out to Neil S., Joanne A. and the Burns families.

The phrase Web 2.0 refers to a perceived second generation of web-based communities and hosted services — such as social-networking sites, wikis and folksonomies — which aim to facilitate collaboration and sharing between users. (Source: Wikipedia)

Ideas for postings? We'd love to hear from you. Email us at
