*Why are we dinosaurs?*

Having looked at some teacher blogs recently, it occurred to me that we are way behind with the adoption of Web 2.0 technologies. We need to add all sorts of RSS feeds, social networking tools and so on. But are these really helpful? No-one has noticed (or at least asked about) the lack of these things on the wiki. So do we need them? You tell me\!
