Peter Coffee at eWeek has some interesting thoughts on UGC. I particularly love the description of the schoolkid entering a competition to design a web page for his class: “It’s blank,” his sister observes. “Well, duh,” he replies. “This is the era of Web 2.0. Users get to generate their own content. Let’s say you want to know what the latest news is. All you have to do is type it out in this box that says ‘News’ and then you can read it.”
