  2. Web 2. Do they really “blend well” with your needs?

    for each participant by formalized and dynamic information sharing and creation”

  5. Tagsonomy Do you really need tagging? Are tag clouds appropriate?

    Would a few preselected categories be enough for your site? Or are you just doing it to be “cool?”
  6. Are Gradients & Gloss Right for you? Does it fit
