Bokardo has joined the Web 2.0 Workgroup, a “network of premium weblogs that write content exclusively about the new generation of the Web. Combined, these sites reach a large readership of influential technology and media professionals.

I’m excited to join, as the premise is that if you like one of the blogs within the workgroup, you’ll like the others, too. Some of the others include sites that I’ve been reading/linking to for a while now, like ReadWriteWeb, Techcrunch, and Scripting News. In addition, however, I’ve been introduced to new sites that provide high quality content, such as Podtech.net and WeBreakStuff.

Podtech, a podcasting site, even put up a podcast of the founders of the Workgroup explaining their rationale, which is an excellent introduction to the workgroup.

Right now, the result of joining is a sharing of attention. People reading the other blogs might find Bokardo a welcome addition to their Web 2.0 reading list. Likewise, the current readers of Bokardo might find the other workgroup sites worth reading.

In the future, I’ll be posting on the efforts of the workgroup to further the Web 2.0 discussion. One of the interesting things being worked on is a OPML feed containing the sites from the workgroup. Download the OPML file, upload it into your feed reader of choice, and you’re instantly subscribed to the Web 2.0 Workgroup.

Hi there. So...I'm trying an experiment. I'm experimenting with product design and growth hacking strategies on a new project called What to Wear. It's a super simple service that sends you a daily email containing clothing recommendations based on the weather. My focus is to make it really useful, and it's free to sign up. Let me know what you think!
