Web 2.0 technologies to enhance the running of a small home based Quilting Busines - TitiaQuilt

I searched the Internet and found many, many information on WEB2.0 technologies. My surfing took me  from What is Web 2.0 by O'Reilly, progressing to Enterprise 2.0 which has Web 2.0 tecnologies as one of its basic drivers, coming back to "The Freelancer's Toolset: 100 Web Apps for Everyting You Will Possibly Need", down to "The Entrepeneurs's Guide to Web 2.0: Top 25 Apps to Grow your Buisness". Then I decided to limit my scope to my own virtual business - TitiaQuilt.  My Mindmap will reflect how I intend to  use Web 2.0 tools.
