Web 2.0 Knowledge Worker

Reminding me of Seth Godin's The growing productivity divide, Stuart Mease sent me this hypothetical job description for a Web 2.0 knowledge worker – a social media, social networking, new media assistant:

Perform the following tasks on a daily, weekly and monthly basis:

Keep updated on new features and communicate to others

Other Tasks

To Mease's job description, Handshake 2.0 would add:

Blogosphere
Keep current on industry-related blogs
Leave thoughtful, informed, insightful comments on relevant blog entries
Mention relevant blog entries in other new media forums

And then this:

Do all the above with authenticity and, above all, heart.

Or, perhaps, Web 2.0 knowledge work can be done like Toyota's Robot Quartet Band:

    My personal take on Myspace:

    1. Daily filter through list of “friends,” deleting relentlessly, wondering how you ever became “friends” with “x0x0omgCUTiiiiiieeee^_^.”

    2. Desperately try to delete your account to escape the overwhelming madness and stupidity.

    3. Cry.
