|Community Generated Content Resource Center|
Welcome to the Community Generated Content Resource Center. With Time Magazine selecting "You" as its Person of the Year, and focusing on Web 2.0 technologies for community-generated content and individual empowerment, our choice for this resource center was obvious. Web 2.0 is empowering individuals to create content and distribute it worldwide instantaneously. The media, the arts, education, business, government and our personal lives are all changing in profound and exciting ways. In the Community Generated Content Resource Center you'll find links to:
