I’m notoriously dilettantish over browsing the web 2.0 social candy store. I like to try new things. I learn by trying and if I didn’t try I wouldn’t discover different ways of doing things (pardon?).
I’ve tried Google reader, iGoogle, Pageflakes , Netvibes and Flock to consolidate my online reading (ooh get me) and now the BBC no less is experimenting with a web page that combines some of those drag and drop style widgets together with the ability to personalise and customise content and style.
Personalisation via customisation does seem to be the way most digital media is going. The filtering is a good idea but sometimes I do wonder if some of it ends up being slightly the triumph of style over content.
